Missing You

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Missing You

Still I hear those voices

From a time so long ago.

I see so many faces

But not the one I love and know.

I walk the same old streets,

Hear your footsteps just the same.

How I’d love to wake tomorrow

And walk with you once again.

Just to look into your eyes

And tell you about my day.

It’s those little things I miss

Since the day you went away.

I now pray to God in heaven

To keep you in his care,

To comfort you and heal this hurt

Until the day I meet you there.

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.
