Grandpa, I Miss You

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Grandpa, I Miss You

I know it hurt you;

It hurt me too,

But now that you’re gone

All I know is I miss you.

You were there for so long.

I never thought you would leave.

I thought you had another year

Waiting up your sleeve.

The day that you left

Was the saddest of my life.

I remember sitting at home

And crying all day and night.

I might be selfish,

But I wish you were here

Or that you stayed

For one more year.

I know you loved me,

And I still love you too,

So I’m trying to be strong

Just for you.

I know I’m not perfect.

I know I’ll never be.

I just hope you’re up there

And that you’re proud of me.

You had to let go

Even though you were holding on for so long,

But there’s not a day I don’t think of you

And how you were so strong.

I just want to tell you

That you’re always in my heart.

Even though I still cry,

I know we’re not apart.

Thinking of you, Grandpa…

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.
