Bereavement poems can help you to express your feelings at a time when words fail you.
Bereavement poetry can say things in a way that offers comfort, insight and solace at times of loss and grief…
Poetry about loss and grief can also help you to understand your loss from a different perspective.
We all have to suffer loss at some stage of our lives…
It may be a beloved partner, a parent, a child or a pet. Each loss is unique and the grief and loss needs to be dealt with.
I have found that poetry has a way of bringing comfort and a sense of connection to a bigger pattern, no matter the circumstances.
Here are some of my favourite bereavement poems. I hope you enjoy them and find relief from your loss.
