Sample Bar Mitzvah Candle Lighting Ceremony Poems by Jill- The Poem Lady:

My grandfather who I love so dear
Passed away recently, but I know he is near
His was my second home in Florida, of this I know
He told me how proud he was as he watched me grow
Grandpa was a baker and bread he would always make
With flour on the table, in the center he made a lake
This candle is to honor him, that has been my plan
Please come up to light it with me, Uncle Frank & Aunt Marianne

He has a pony tail and she loves to make french toast
Enjoying all our meals in bed is what I love the most
Whether it's riding a tandem bike together or frequenting street fairs
They're my New York City grandparents and no love matches theirs
They let me drive their boat and do everything I want to do
Dear Grandma and Grandpa Birdie please come up for candle number two

I am so happy these next two people moved here, back up north
Now in order to see them we don't have to go back and forth
When I come to visit you my heartbeat starts to quicken
Cause no one in the world can compete with your famous chicken
I'm so glad to have you here, it really is a thrill
Please come up for number three, Grandma Disney and Grandpa Bill

You always take great care of us when Mom and Dad are away
Every year for Christmas, it's Florida that we stay
I love you for your grace and charm and because you're oh so witty
It's great that you have a fondness for the likes of Atlantic City
Please know how much I miss you whenever we're apart
I love my Irish grandma with all my Irish heart
Come on Grandma, let's light candle number four together

I was the ring bearer at your wedding which really was a treat
I love your funny birthday cards, I think they're really sweet
It's wonderful you live so close, I really must proclaim
Thanks so much for taking me to my very first Flyers game
My first word was kraka (for Erica) which really caused a stir
Little Rachel is so cute, some day I'll sit for her
I'm so happy you're all here or else it would be odd
Come up to light number five, Aunt Erica, Cousin Rachel and Uncle Todd

I love that I'm the big cousin around our little brood
Uncle Richie is so funny, he puts me in a great mood
Soon you'll marry Marci and your family will make four
As our family grows and grows there'll be lots of fun galore
Aunt Jenni and Uncle Lon are the New York City pair
We play with Ethan and with Bryn whenever we are there
Candle number six awaits you no matter the order you're in
Come up Uncle Richie, Marci, Aunt Jenn, Uncle Lon, Taylor, Jordan, Ethan and Bryn

What can I say about this next person who doesn't have a flaw
She helped deliver me when was I born so was the first face I ever saw
She's a chiropractor and deputy mayor of a small New Jersey town
Yet in her spare time she jumps from planes and isn't afraid of looking down
If Dave and Nikita could come up here, I'd really be in heaven
Help me get Aunt Debbie Buzby to light candle number seven

Every year we vacation with a big group of our friends
Each year the group gets bigger and the laughter never ends
It started off with the GreenHalls down the Jersey shore
Then we added the Fasciacos at the beach and more fun was in store
Soon came cruising and the McConnell family decided to join in
The pools were always awesome as was every place we've been
Finally the Hintons finished our group with a trip to Punta Cana
Mike G, Bobbie F and all my vacation buddies please come up-you know you really wanna

You've shared every important day with me through my entire life
Were we to miss a holiday it would fill my heart with strife
Next year though I'll skip the horseradish, you all know why, I suppose
It was so spicy and you laughed so hard when it came right out my nose
If you could come join me here it really would be fine
Aunt Jen, Uncle Steve, Adin and Tylie please light candle number nine

My Mom's sisters are always around, they're here for each special day
Carmel and Marie are in Woodstock and are never too far away
Aunt Deb lives near us in Philly and always has a smile
My uncles are cool also and add a classy style
Caroline loves to act and marches with the band
Nicole is off to college where good grades are in high demand
Fiona is really cute, she's a little slice of heaven
Come on up all you guys for candle number eleven

    Comments: Jill was terrific to work with. Initially I thought I would have her help my daughter with her candle lighting poems,,, daughter decided to do it straight form the heart so my husband and I took advantage of having Jill in our corner. She quickly (days not weeks) took our thoughts and feelings, which she evoked with questions and conversation, and made two beautifully written speeches. One I used at Temple, and Hubby read his at the party. If you are feeling tongue tied at this special moment in your child's life, have no fear, Hire Jill !!
