FUNERAL READINGS: Choose a Reading

For Parents

Let’s thank
And thank again
And give love
To those that live peacefully
Modestly and with kindness
The beating hearts
Of gracious worlds
The ones
That care for us

Those gentle parents
That gave life
And memories
Of special days

Let’s thank
That sometimes
Happy home
Cheerful laughter
Sunshine and rain
In sickness and in health
Clean and polished
Woven in tapestry
Tied with shoelaces
Spanning lifetimes
Of sounds, sights
And fragrances
From burnt offerings
To cut grass

Let’s thank
Stern parents and gambolling children
Generation on generation
Passing from one place to the next
Journeying souls
That bloomed radiantly
And have moved on
Leaving us rich in thought
Memory and love
