Looking For A Custom Personalized Funeral Poem?
Can't find any funeral poems that are even remotely close to what you're searching for? You’re not alone.
The Problem With Funeral Poems
Amidst planning for the funeral, and feeling like you've been kicked in the stomach, you're trying to hunt down a poem for the service that will, in some small way, express your love for your beloved.
A poem that will capture their essence. Not the typical, generic lines of poetry.
The classic poems really don’t reflect the true image of your loved one, do they?
A lot of them use imagery that goes way over most people’s head.
And the popular poems are used time and time again, and start to sound like a broken record. Even the best poems need an update.
If you’ve never settled for the ordinary before, why would you want to start now?
Would you like a poem that is the difference between memorable and unmemorable? A poem that is truly one of a kind, completely dedicated to the story of your loved one.
The Solution To A Memorable Funeral Poem
We will create for you a custom personalized funeral poem, inspired by your loved one. A poem that you will always cherish. That can be framed and displayed. A poem that your family and friends will want a copy for a keepsake.
Our funeral poem maker and poet, Judith, will lovingly write a poem that includes the things that made your loved one so special.
- Why you loved them.
- A poem that is completely original.
- A custom poem that will bring tears and smiles to those in attendance at the service.
- A custom poem that your family will hug you after hearing it and be forever grateful to you for your efforts.
- A funeral poem that is designed especially for you. That will convey your heartfelt affection and a reflection of how you feel about your loved one.
What Our Purchasers Are Saying:
Well, we sent mam off with a funeral to remember mostly due to your fantastic words. We made her proud standing up in front of a packed out church reading words and phrases that reflected the wonderful lady we knew as 'our mam'. The whole congregation applauded when we finished, someone commenting that the only other funeral that they can remember applauding at was Princess Diana's. Many commented that "it was the nicest funeral they'd been too" and that was partly due to the wonderful words we read out to make the saddest day of our lives into the celebration and thanksgiving for the brilliant years and memories we made together as a family. We heard more laughs than cries which comforted my dad and us. The horse shoe pic not only represented the luck mam had in her life but how lucky we were to have had her as our mam, grandmother and as my dad has had to have her as a devoted wife. I can never begin to say a big enough thank you for your poetry. Continue the fantastic work as I am under no doubt you will bring huge comfort to many more families through your fantastic talent.
Forever grateful, Leigh
I wanted to thank you so very much for my poem. It was so touching to friends and family . The priest read it to all and was so moved and touched by it. I placed it in a beautiful frame. I added white roses and flowers to the corners along with two doves. The priest blessed it and handed back to me and said you should keep this, it's so beautiful and mom was so touched to hear it. Friends and family were also so touched by it. I had people I didn't even know come up to me and say beautiful and then hug me.
Once again thank you. Doreen

"Thank you for capturing the true essence of who my wife was, and our relationship. Words simply cannot express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation. I just pray that I have the strength to stand up and read it on the day. Kind regards." Mr Miller Click here to Read the Poem, written for Mr. Miller
"Just wanted to let you know we received the poem just as we were walking out the door to the visitation. We missed the deadline to get the poem printed in the funeral handout so we printed it off and put it in the casket. We had my cousin read it during the service. The poem was perfect. Thank you for personalizing the service, it was very special and received a few chuckles and tears. " Stacy
An Example of Our Custom Funeral Poems;
When Sheryl's father passed away, she searched through all the poems and came up empty.
Nothing really captured his essence or described the ways in which he was
So she turned to Creative Funeral Ideas and asked us to write her a poem.
She wrote how he loved to have fun, and was an explorer and traveler. He loved his Norwegian Viking heritage. Loved animals, camping with the family, big lakes, and was the life of the party. And his battle with cancer.
Here is the poem Judith wrote:
We remember Torg with memories and love
As the greatest Dad and friend
Husband, Grandpa and much, much more
A love that shall be without end
His courageous battle with cancer
Was conducted with dignity and grace
Like the life he lived, so fearless and brave
He confronted the journey he faced
His days were filled with activity and fun
An explorer in body and mind
Like his Viking heritage name
‘Torg’ was truly one of a kind
A seeker of knowledge with a thirst for life
To experience, learn and discover
And family times with camping and games
Will be treasured like no other
Fisherman, boater and sportsman alike
His interests were spread far and wide
Like the ‘Big Waters’ he loved so much
As he soaked up life’s wonders with pride
He loved animals and people on equal terms
His quest for knowledge never through
And a listening ear, which was always fine tuned
As he loved a good story or two
Though his journey on Earth may be conquered
His traveller spirit still prevails
In his passage to celestial glory
To discover what the next world entails
His memory will always be treasured
Even though we are now separate
A piece of his adventure remains with us all
And his ‘life of the party’ celebrated
Judith C. Adamson
"That is just fantastic Judith! You wrote like you knew him! What
a gift! I can't wait to share it with my family. God Bless You!" - Sheryl
Example Two Of A Custom Funeral Poem
Jack was born with Down Syndrome and lived to be 59 years young. Here is the poem Judith created, that was inserted into the Celebration of Life program:
Jackie’s love of life,
his own special trait
And personality as
bright as the sun
His outlook on life
was like Snow White
That ‘We are never too
old to have fun’
And Jackie knew just
how to do that
With his happy and fun
Such a fan of all celebrations
birthdays, his favourite days
His birthday each June
was so special
A cake and party, with
He would grin from ear
to ear at the Stomping Tom songs
Which he could listen
to for evermore!
Joni would lead and
insist we joined in
To sing the chorus of
his favourite songs
Like ‘The Hockey Song’
& ‘Margo’s Cargo’
Jack was thrilled when
we would all sing along
Jackie’s family all truly
doted on him
With a lifetime of
tender loving care
Mom Elaine, Sister
Jane and all the others
So much family joy
they all shared
relationships with his siblings
Were marked with their
own special name
Jackie gave each one
his personal touch
And MinMin, Face, Shai
and Ooley they became!
Jackie had many other
Like A&W meals,
Lottery tickets, and Halloween
Also his own special
bench to watch the trains go by
Waving at passengers,
he’d often be seen!
Jackie also was fascinated
And he would visit
them, sometimes several a day
Is it possible his
sixth sense felt something special
And some comfort was
shared in some way?
Jackie will be such a
big miss to us all
But his life was truly
lived to the full!
And the lessons he
leaves us are so profound
Because he showed us
life’s too short to be dull!
Jackie will always
have a place in our hearts
And his energy and joy
And we might just take
ourselves a bit less seriously...
As we wave at that
next passing train!

beautiful husband in every word, thank you so very much for putting my words
into this. I
can't thank you enough, you are fantastic with words. As you
can see, I am very, very happy with what you have written and don't need to
change a thing xx I would love to think that I can read this myself and I so
want to, but the tears will probably stop me and someone else will have to do
it for me. Loved how you used my words "bestest mate" thank you. Kind
My daughters and I have reviewed this through many tears. We think you have done a great job in capturing the essence of Mike with just the few ideas I sent. Thank you so much. No changes required! Joan
