My Best Friend’s Departure

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

My Best Friend’s Departure

I jumped; you caught me.

I laughed; you joked.

I was down; you picked me up.

I crumbled; you glued me back together.

I loved you; you loved me back.

You jumped; I couldn’t catch you.

You forgot to laugh; I couldn’t remind you.

You were down; I couldn’t hold you.

You crumbled; I had no glue.

You loved me; I still love you.

Without any warning or sign,

You ventured to a world divine.

I refused to say goodbye,

Yet tonight I cry.

My tears are for you, my friend,

But our legacy will not end.

For I shall see you soon,

But first I have living to do.

I promise I won’t forget.

Your face is embedded in my heart.

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.
