Have you tried searching on a funeral-specific poetry site? Some of them I think have quite good indexing. Otherwise (I assume the family are too upset for you to ask them directly) you could perhaps get in touch with the Church of Scotland?

Deffo not Prayer Before Birth. Lovely poem though.

OP - no idea, sorry.

Not sure where else to put this question so I hope somebody can help smile

A poem was read at a funeral I was at last week.

It was written by a Church Of Scotland minister, and was called "I didn't want to be born"

Google has been no help with such scant information, but I know the poem must be 'out there' as the family requested it.

It goes along the lines of "I didn't want to be born, I loved the warmth of my mother's womb, but I knew one day a door would open and I would have to pass through"

It was essentially about fear of the unknown and was very comfortingsmile
