My Mother

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

My Mother

Look up to the sky.

Now tell me what you see.

A cloud, the moon, possibly the sun.

Many answers there will be.

When I look up to the sky,

I’ll tell you what I see.

I see my mother,

And she’s looking back at me.

She tells me she didn’t want to leave us,

But it was time for her to depart.

It was the hardest thing she had to do,

And it’s breaking her heart.

She tells me we mustn’t be sad

Because finally she’s pain free.

She’s found her place in heaven

Underneath a blossom tree.

She’ll always be there to guide us

When we feel we’ve lost the way.

She’ll always be there to comfort us

And wipe those tears away.

She’ll always be there to share our joy

And laugh at the jokes we make.

In order to feel her presence,

Only a little imagination it’ll take.

She may be in the form of a butterfly

Or simply a floating feather

Or hovering over like a busy bee

Or simply part of the weather.

You’ve all come here to say your farewell,

But for me it’s not goodbye.

If I want to see her, all I have to do

Is look up to the sky.

Sweet dreams, Mam

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.
