My Dad

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

My Dad

We miss your face; you were taken too soon.

Your beaming smile that lit up the room,

Them cheeky dimples and twinkle in your eye.

We keep asking ourselves why, oh why.

We miss your Daddy cuddles and kisses on the cheek,

The way you gave us strength when we were feeling weak.

We miss how you cared and protected us so.

But why, oh why, did you have to go?

We miss your voice and hearing you moan,

Watching your iPad or texting on your phone.

We miss you laughing and hearing you sing.

We even miss the microwave going ding ding.

We miss the jokes the banter you had at work

And cluttering the table, driving mum berserk,

Your coat and hat draped over the chair.

We just can’t understand why life is so unfair!

We love you Daddy; it’s unbelievably clear

That we would do anything to have you back here.

But untill the day we meet again,

Warm in our hearts is where you remain.

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.
