Funeral Poems & Readings

My Grandmother

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

My Grandmother

In my rose garden of memories,

I see you standing there,

An angel in disguise,

Who taught me how to care.

I long to hear your voice

for real – not in my dreams.

I am missing you so much these days.

How empty my world seems.

People say time heals all wounds,

that someday the pain will subside,

but Grandma, I can tell you

I think they must have lied.

The emptiness I am feeling now

is strong and I am weak.

These days go by without you,

so dreary and so bleak.

In my rose garden of memories

I know you’ll always be,

for though you’re gone from this mortal world,

in my heart you’ll always be.

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.
