A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Please Don’t Cry

Please, don’t cry.

I’m not really gone.

When you look out the window,

I’ll be standing on the lawn.

Please, don’t cry.

I’ll see you again.

Don’t be sad;

Keep up your chin.

Please, don’t cry.

I’m not really dead.

When you cry yourself to sleep,

I’ll be by your bed.

Please, don’t cry.

Just because we had to part,

As long as you remember me,

I’ll live in your heart.

Please, don’t cry.

I’m not gone forever.

I’ll be a cool and gentle breeze

In hot summer weather.

Please, don’t cry.

Don’t run and hide.

When you need a shoulder to lean on,

I’ll be by your side.

Please, don’t cry.

When you’re sad and weak,

I’ll be there

To kiss you on the cheek.

Please, don’t cry.

This is just a goodbye.

So please, oh please,

Baby, do not cry.

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.
