It’s not always easy finding the right words when someone close to you passes away. The worries of saying too much or too little can overshadow how you really feel or prohibit you from comforting those around you.

Whether it’s an original verse or previously published prose, this type of ode helps express certain thoughts and feelings about the death of a loved one.
