If I Could Hear Her

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

If I Could Hear Her

I see your teardrops falling.

I hear you cry my name.

I know you cannot see me,

but I hold you just the same.

I watch as you lie abed

as restless as can be.

I hear your whispered words

as you pray for dreams of me.

Every day for you is painful.

Each breath, each step you take,

but as the wise mom, I know

a future you will make.

I envelope you in my love

as for me you used to do.

It’s hard to see you in such pain.

Forever the strong one’s been you.

Although our lives’ journeys

have bid us to be apart,

I am with you, you are with me,

always in our hearts.

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.
