A poem should be chosen with care--both to reflect the religious tradition of the deceased (and family), but also to reflect the life of the individual.  A well-chosen poem can help the congregation begin to work through their grief, or can help bring a smile as memories come to mind.  Many of these poems are written from a particular perspective--often as a letter from the deceased to the bereaved.
