My Dad

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

My Dad

I know this man

Who is dear to my heart.

Suddenly one day

It was torn all apart.

This man taught me everything

That I needed to know,

But I never really listened

Until he had to go.

He gave me love

And touched my life.

It’s all over now;

He no longer has to fight.

He tried to teach me

Right from wrong.

The day he left

I wasn’t that strong.

He is gone now,

It is hard to believe.

This man is my dad

Whom I will never see.

But I will see him again,

This I know.

The day will come

When it’s time for me to go.

So, I’ll hold him dear

And close to my heart

‘Cause the day we meet

I know we’ll never be torn apart.

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.
