New Zealand poet Faye Kilday is helping bring comfort to grieving people around the world and providing them with inspiring poems for their loved ones' funerals through the release of her audio book, Poems For Funerals & Those Who Grieve, which is selling in top online stores.

The death of a loved one is never easy, but angel-inspired poet Faye Kilday's new audio book is making this difficult time a little easier.

Poems For Funerals & Those Who Grieve contains 76 poems that celebrate the life of a lost loved one whilst providing much-needed solace and hope.

Faye got the idea to write the book in her local library. "I overheard a lady ask a librarian if there were any books of poems for funerals," she says. "It turned out there was nothing that suited her needs and that's when I got the idea to write my book."

The paperback version of Poems For Funerals & Those Who Grieve was published in 2006 and can be purchased from But Faye always knew she wanted to make an audio book version one day. "I love audio books," she says. "You can listen to them while you work, while you drive and travel. And they're wonderful for the sight-impaired. And it's nice to hear a comforting voice read you inspiring messages, especially when you're going through a tough time."

Faye is no stranger to death. "My father and my grandmother died when I was a child. My audio book is dedicated to them - my own special angels in Heaven."

Poems from the audio book version of Poems For Funerals & Those Who Grieve can also be played at funerals, saving loved ones the often difficult experience of standing up in front of the gathering and reading them from the book themselves.

Faye calls her poetry Angel-Inspired Poetry because, she says, her poems are inspired by angels. "I started writing Angel-Inspired Poetry nine years ago during an illness. The poems flowed through me and after they were written I knew they were a gift from the angels!"

The simplicity of Faye's poems makes them accessible to everyone, including those who wouldn't normally read or enjoy poetry.

Faye feels blessed knowing her audio book is helping people around the world who are dealing with the death of a loved one. "The poems in this audio book will help anyone who's been affected by death, regardless of where in the world they live," she says.
