If Only You Could Have Stayed

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

If Only You Could Have Stayed

Constantly thinking,

never to be the same.

The tears fall quickly

just hearing your name.

Silence is golden,

yet not anymore.

Silence brings thoughts

I just can’t ignore.

The nights are sleepless,

dreams out of reach.

Crying in my pillow

to you I beseech.

Surrounded by family,

I still feel alone.

My heart is so empty.

This pain I must own.

I wish I could hug you

and just see your face.

But now I have memories

to stand in your place.

Gone but not forgotten,

that’s what they say.

Of course that is true…

but if only you could have stayed.

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.
