Our Hearts Are Broken Forever

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Our Hearts Are Broken Forever

Our hearts are broken forever.

People tell us that in time the pieces will eventually come back together.

If this is true, though hard to believe now, there will always be a space,

The piece to which has your name on its place.

Tears have been falling now for so long.

When we think of your beautiful face, it all seems so wrong.

You had so much to look forward to and so much left to do,

But God needed somebody in heaven who is as special as you.

Nothing is the same now, and we doubt it ever will be.

You have been released from pain and suffering; you have been set free.

Your story has touched people, all ages, near and far.

On the night you were taken from us, in the sky was a lone twinkling star.

Was that you to tell us that you had reached home now?

And from life as we knew it, it was time for you to take your final bow.

We miss your voice, your infectious laugh and hearing you sing.

Fashion you loved, and now you have new accessories – a pair of angel’s wings.

The world has lost a wonderful girl, a true and amazing friend.

But maybe her goodness was needed to help and from heaven she needed to send.

You are always around us, engulfing us with your love,

Giving us strength, keeping us close, and watching over us from above.

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.
