A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Maleah Antionette Gray

God gave me an angel,

A sweet, smiling baby girl.

He gave her to me…

10 little fingers, 10 tiny toes…all curled.

God gave me an angel

Whose smile could light the dark.

He gave her to me

To hold deep within my heart.

God gave me an angel

In the form of this perfect baby girl.

He gave her to me

To change my whole world.

God gave me an angel,

A special gift he gives very few.

He gave me an angel

To touch the lives of me and you.

God gave me an angel.

Though I could only keep her for a while,

He let me keep the memories

That will always make me smile.

God gave me an angel.

Her time was just for show.

He may have given me an angel,

But he never told me I’d have to let her go.

For the only problem with having an angel,

Is they’re too perfect for this world

Once you’ve held a piece of Heaven

In the arms of your baby girl.

God gave me an angel,

This I know is true.

For my life can never be the same,

All because I met 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.
