A Heavenly Birthday

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

A Heavenly Birthday

You walk beside me every day.

You’re here in all I do and say.

At night I close my eyes and pray

To someone who took you away.

My thoughts are all in disarray.

My tears are public, on display.

I wish that you were here today,

That you could take my pain away.

Why do I play this game I play?

Pretend to all that I’m okay?

This will sound selfish, some will say,

But I wish you hadn’t gone away.

I don’t go out, got feet of clay.

I know you’re here so want to stay.

I wish I could relive that day.

I would have washed your pain away.

Memories like a DVD play,

Memories of that awful day.

So much that I wanted to say

That day someone took you away.

My thoughts don’t move; they never may,

Won’t even meet me half the way,

So till we meet on God’s highway,

I’ll sit and dream my life away.

I send my love to heaven today,

Not just because it’s your birthday.

I’ll send you love every day

Until my life has passed away.

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.
