Light A Candle

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Light A Candle

light a candle,

see it glow,

watch it dance,

when you feel low,

think of me,

think of light,

I’ll always be here,

day or night,

a candle flickers,

out of sight,

but in your heart,

I still burn bright,

think not of sadness,

that I’m not near,

think of gladness,

and joyous cheer,

I have not left,

I am not gone,

I’m here to stay

my little one,

so when you light a candle

and you see it glow

and you watch it dance

in your heart you’ll know

that I would never leave you

even when you feel so blue

I’m sitting up here with the Lord

and now watching over you

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.
