I Let You Go

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

I Let You Go

I send you to the restless sun

Awaiting your sweet shine,

And in between this world and next

I’ll hold your hand in mine.

For it is there between the sky

And boundless clouds of blue

That those who’ve passed this way before

Are waiting there for you.

Life is made of many things,

Of love, of grief, of strife.

Women pulled by many strings,

A child, mother, wife.

And now those strings will bind no more.

You’re free to chase the wind.

This is where your troubles end

And where your peace begins.

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.
