Songs for grieving without Religion
I find that music helps me deal with pretty much anything, but when I go to look up songs for grieving with no religious undertone, they seem pretty short on supply.

If you know any, please help me out. Maybe people who need to grieve that don't believe will find this thread, and a little bit of comfort too.

I believe Sufjan wrote this whole album about the death of his mom, who struggled with addiction. This song really stood out to me.

Not sure what else to say honestly.

This song haunted me as a kid back in the 70s.

RE: Songs for grieving without Religion
Not music, but a poem that I wish someone would set to music. I had never heard it until a funeral last year. Both my BFF and I want it read when our times come.

http://www.appleseeds.org/What-Matters.htm

I pull it up every once in a while to remind myself of its contents. I also had the phrase "Choose to live a life that matters" made into a pendant.

And by the way, the life of the person's funeral where I heard this read? Lived by it. He mattered a great deal to a great many people in ways that he largely kept to himself. The accolades of what a difference he made in various people's lives was overwhelming. Over and over you heard people say "I had no idea."

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
