A funeral service for children requires readings and poems appropriate for the deceased individual’s age range. If you are planning on having a child’s cremation service in Hamilton, NJ, and would like some sample readings, here are some suggestions below:
“This was a life that had hardly begun
No time to find your place in the Sun
No time to do all you could have done
But we loved you enough for a lifetime”
You, our precious little butterfly slipped into the world so perfectly.
Your bow-shaped mouth and baby-scent changed our world with a breath.
Dreams of puppies, popsicles and kites;
Barbies in pink lace and skinned knees in opaque tights, brought tender warmth and anticipation.
Then, as suddenly as you entered, like a dove, gently back you fluttered.
With us you briefly sojourned.
Now, to Our Father you have returned.
Irene Ann, your moments were but a few but what you have etched on our souls will remain our whole lives through.
Rest in caring and warmth, Eternally beloved.
“My little man, down what centuries of light did you travel to reach us here, your stay so short-lived;
In the twinkling of an eye you were moving on, bearing our name and a splinter of the human cross we suffer;
flashed upon us like a beacon, we wait in darkness for that light to come round, knowing at heart you shine forever for us.”
“My silent child, our precious baby,
Close to my heart I’ll keep you with me.
An important job God has for you,
There is love to give, and work to do.
He needs an angel strong but small,
To shine light on many and give love to all.”
Eyes that twinkle sunshine
A face that breaks your heart
That special look of innocence
Remains while we’re apart.
We had you for a short while,
But you brought so many joys,
Now play in peace our baby,
Enjoy your angel toys.
Time will bring us comfort
While waiting for the day
When we will be together again
Not just a whisper away.
From the echo of your first cry
I felt as though my heart started to exist outside of me.
Now that you’re gone, you live inside every candle I light.
You’re in the horizon of every sunrise and sunset
glowing like the fire you set inside of me.
I’ll never stop asking why your time was cut too short,
perhaps you were too innocent for this world.
I know I’ll never find an answer
it can be hard to swallow the anger
but I know you’d want me to keep on pushing
so you can live forever in the garden of my memory.
I’ll water you every day
in the hope that you’re still blossoming
you may be far from me
but I’ll never admit I’ve lost you forever even though every day I can still feel you tearing away.
