A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

A Call From Heaven

I lie awake long into the night,

Hoping that maybe you just might

Give me a call to say you’re okay

And let me know you made it through the day.

I would give everything that I have

To make you feel not so sad.

I know the pain is sometimes too great,

But the love was something you can never mistake.

I long for the day when I see you again.

Then we can talk about where all we’ve been.

We can think about all the times we had,

How we’ve missed each other ever so bad.

I feel like I’ve been cheated and robbed so blind.

God took you away when I thought you were mine.

Now I’m stuck here and feel so alone

As I sit and wait right beside the phone.

You gave me a life and everything I have.

I couldn’t say no, even when I was mad.

You gave me my children that I hold so dear.

You took away everything that I ever feared.

As the hurt seems to fade but the memories are bright,

Maybe I’ll see you in a dream tonight.

That’s all I can hope for until the day

When were together in heaven for an eternity.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
