How I Feel

Sometimes I just wish I could run away and hide.

No matter where I go though, these feelings stay inside.

How can I stay here and live each day a lie,

When all I want to do is close my eyes and die?

I see the pain I cause you, with every tear I shed.

I plead with you now mum, let me go instead.

I wish I could take you with me, to a happy place,

Whether it exists though, is time for me to face.

Can I ask for your forgiveness? For you to set me free.

It may seem ungrateful, but this life’s not meant for me.

Thank you for all your love, for all the time we shared,

It means the world to me, to know that someone cared.

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.
