Poems used as memorial tributes include "Do Not Stand By My Grave and Weep" by Mary Elizabeth Frye, "She Is Gone" by David Harkins, "No Night Without" by Helen Steiner Rice and "Funeral Blues" by W.H. Auden. Memorial tribute poems are often read during funerals as part of a eulogy.
Other popular memorial tribute poems written by unknown authors are "I Thought About You with Love Today" and "If Tears Could Build A Stairway." Such poems must be relevant to the life of the person who passed away and help those who are gathered for the funeral or memorial service to reflect on the time as well as memories they shared with their departed loved one.
