Original Sympathy Poems

Losing a loved one is a painful part of life. A friend or anyone with whom we share lots of time and experience, is never easy.

At these difficult times, it’s so important to express our deepest feelings and emotions. But ironically, these are also the times when such expression can be very challenging.

Poems To Go can help. We’ll write a personal, appropriate sympathy poem for your father or mother that enables you to express those feelings of sorrow and condolence. Sympathy poems for loss of son, mother, an aunt or uncle, or even for your pet, can strike a soothing chord for all. And because we write our poems exclusively from information you provide, you know you’re getting an absolute original.

Here's a real-life sympathy poem excerpt

In blessed memory of the one,
Who was special as can be.
I refer to my grandma, Ruth Browdy,
Loved so much, as all can see.

So proud she was, forever,
Of all her grandkids, for sure.
She kept our business cards in her pocket,
And talked us up galore.

My grandparents were proud owners
Of "Browdy's," extraordinaire.
The place in good old Birmingham,
To get a great meal from folks who care.

In truth, Browdy's is real special,
An institution in all kids of ways.
And my grandma was Browdy's shining star,
Oh, how she would amaze!

Always in her navy blue suit,
Her efforts could not be beat.
If you came to see her,
You simply HAD to eat.

Dear Amy,
"It was shocking to lose one of my best pals. And I just couldn't find the right words to express to his wife and family. I'm so glad I turned to you. The eulogy you wrote was remarkable. There weren't too many dry eyes in the place. But even with all the tears, you evoked a lot of good feeling for all of us. I can't thank you enough."
