Funeral homes in Loudonville, NY

Funeral homes in Loudonville, NY, take care of as much of the final arrangements as each family authorizes. However, preparing a tribute for your mother’s funeral service is quite a personal task. How do you find the right words to capture everything she meant to you and everyone who loved her? How do you give voice to grief, pain, and love all at once? The answer is never simple, which is why people turn to poetry.

Poems can help express precisely how you feel. The right poem can say things that are almost impossible to put into words yourself. It may just be the thing that gives you strength when things are at their hardest. Here are four such poems for reading at a mom’s funeral service.

Your Mother is Always with You – Deborah R Culver

She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
She’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself.

She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well.
She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.
She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow.

She is Christmas morning.

Your mother lives inside your laughter.
She’s the place you come from, your first home.
She’s the map you follow with every step you take.

She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy.
But nothing on Earth can separate you.
Not time.
Not space.
Not even death.

A Poem for Mother – Unknown

Mother, you were just a girl,
So many years ago.
You had your loves and had your dreams,
You watched us come and go.
You watched us make the same mistakes,
That you had made before,
But that just made you hold us tight,
And love us all the more.
We haven’t always thought about
The things that you have seen.
To us you’ve just been ‘Mother’,
No thought of who you’ve been.
But we remember now in love,
Your life from start to end,
And we’re just glad we knew you,
As Mother, and as Friend.

Only One Mother – George Cooper

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of birds in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.

Her Journey’s Just Begun – Unknown

Don’t think of her as gone away, her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years.
Think how she must be wishing that we could know today
How nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.
