When We Lose a Loved One

A short but touching funeral poem about the pain and grief of losing a loved one, ideal as a funeral reading or eulogy.

When We Lose a Loved One

When we lose a loved one

Our world just falls apart

We think that we cant carry on

With this broken heart

Everything is different now

You’re upset and you’re annoyed

Your world it seems is shattered

There’s such an awful void

There’s got to be a reason

And we have to understand

God made us and at any time

Hell reach down for our hand

There might not be a warning

We won’t know where or when

The only thing were certain of

Is well meet them once again.
