A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Reality

I have nightmares and can’t sleep.

The loss of you is a wound so deep.

My mind recorded the times we had.

Knowing there will be no more memories makes me sad.

I struggle for answers to what went wrong.

I’ll miss you my whole life, however long.

My world has changed to black and gray.

My tears come frequently every day.

I don’t think my heart will heal.

I still can’t accept that this is real.

Keeping you close is not enough.

Happiness and smiling is so tough.

I don’t know who I am; I only know I’m not me.

A mother who lost her child is what people see.

How can I go on without you here?

Finding out there is no heaven is my greatest fear.

I’m trusting my God and the promises he said.

I picture a beautiful reunion in my head.

One more day, just one more time to hold my child

and ease my mind.

I hope you knew how much you meant

and how much I loved the child God sent.

My heart, my soul will never be the same.

I will always cry when I hear your name.

I can’t erase the day you left; it will always haunt me.

A life cut short, a scream in the night, something not meant to see.

The wound I have from losing you is a wound like no other,

a broken heart of a grieving mother.

Tonight I can’t sleep.

My pain’s too deep

because I am missing you.

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.
