Words to Comfort, Words to Heal

Poems and Meditations for those Who Grieve

An inspirational anthology which celebrates lives that have ended and offers consolation to those left behind

Drawn from the work of poets, writers, philosophers, and spiritual texts, this inspirational volume will provide comfort, consolation, and support for those who are grieving. Whether it's finding the words for a public memorial or some moments of private reflection, these specially selected passages from such greats as Christina Rossetti, Dylan Thomas, and Leo Tolstoy as well as rarer pieces from around the globe, including tribal prayers from Africa and the Americas, remind us of the bond we all share in mourning and that with loss also comes hope.

'Mabey’s gentle, comforting anthology of verse offers consolation in difficult times.'
