Missing You

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Missing You

I sit alone now in the darkness of despair.

I cry my silent tears.

My heart is broken into a million tiny pieces.

The silence is deafening to my ears.

The darkness frightens me.

The shadows climb the wall.

I hear footsteps walking,

Passing through the hall.

The loneliness surrounds me;

It takes my breath away.

This is the pattern of my life

Since that awful, dreadful day.

Without a clue,

Without a hint

Of what was yet to be,

God called you home

To be with him

And took you away from me.

I walk, I talk. I carry on

When the sun pokes out its head,

But when darkness falls

And evening comes,

I cannot go to bed.

For this is when I miss you most of all.

When I curl into a little ball

And cry those silent tears.

Watching the shadows

And missing 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.
