Dear God, Please Take Care Of My Little Girl

Dear God, please take care of my little girl,

The one with big eyes and soft brown curls.

She was special, as you should know.

I really didn’t want to let her go.

She touched the hearts of everyone she knew.

Letting her go was so hard to do.

Her smile could brighten up the darkest room.

I wish you didn’t have to take her so soon.

Could you sit and rock her and read her a story?

She’s probably afraid; please tell her don’t worry.

Tell her mommy loves her and wishes she could be here,

But it won’t be for many more years.

She loves to sing all kinds of songs.

Please tell her that she did no wrong.

Would you comfort her and hold her in your arms tight?

And tell her she is missed every day and night.

Please tell her she is loved so very dear.

I’ll say it every day for her to hear.

Her short life on earth is now completed

For lessons I’m sure you felt I needed.

Tell her I promise to see her again someday.

When that will be, I really can’t say.

I promise to make up for the time that’s passed,

To hold her and comfort her in my arms at last.

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.
