Was it ever brought to your attention that memorial poems can play a significant role in the grieving process? While it is regrettable that poetry readings are becoming less and less popular in ordinary life, they are still frequently employed at major rituals and events, such as funerals, to honor the deceased. Despite the fact that we only use poems on rare occasions, our desire to resort to them to commemorate significant events demonstrates that we still comprehend the power of uplifting funeral readings and are attracted to them.
An excellent poem about loss helps you to express the essence of the human predicament in a few simple lines. The poet examines universal topics and strives to express an aspect of human life through the perfect arrangement of a few carefully curated words. Funeral blues that are relatable are the best. When we write it, we are able to explain ourselves to others, and when we read it, we are able to develop empathy and remember everything we have in common. To feel joy and pain, to laugh and cry, to celebrate the joys of life while fearing our mortality is what poetry does. In this sense, it helps us to feel more connected to the people around us.
Contented is one of the most powerful and joyous funeral poems that make a listener realize how much willpower the person who is no more had when he/she was alive. You can pick this bereavement poem at your parents’ or grandparents’ funeral to show everyone their strength. There is not much information about the poet, but whosoever he/she deserves a hug for being so strong and positive.
In this first line, the poet sets out a scenario where the soul has departed to the Lord and is very happy knowing that the life it lived was worthwhile. The soul is glad to know that on the way that it passed, there was some or the other individual whom it made smile.
To the dear ones that have been left behind soul has a message. It says that whenever all of you are walking down the street and have me on your mind, remember a thing. That is, I am always walking half a step behind you, and that too in your footsteps. You need not feel lonely and empty because I am right beside you.
The third stanza of the grief poem begins with the soul saying that whenever you feel a cold and gentle breeze touching your face, remember it’s me. The gentleness that touches you softly is a hug given to you by me to make you feel my presence beside you.
Lastly, the soul requests its loved ones on the earth to never be sad and unhappy, just because their beloved is no more in the sight. Rather, always keep in mind that I am there with you, be it anywhere and anytime. I will always be there beside you to make you feel homely and loved.
‘Contented’ is certainly one sad poem that none of you wants to miss when it comes to a heartfelt eulogy.
Memorial Poem Contented
Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
And when you face the gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
I’m giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.
So please don’t be unhappy,
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you,
Every morning, noon and night.
