A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Reflections

Remember all those happy days, those times she called our own

In all those well-loved places where you now grieve alone.

And those small endearing gestures, which you thought you knew so well,

Are fading, as time passes, with her words, her kiss, her smell.

But then there is that moment, that time within the day,

When you feel she is beside you in that old familiar way.

But as you turn to see her smile or receive a tender touch,

There’s only a dark shadow of the one you loved so much.

And tears begin to fall in that hole of deep despair,

And memories overwhelm you – more than your heart can bear.

As you remember her gentle grace and her love so soft but strong,

Your heart will simply miss a beat as you miss her life, her song.

You want to rewind the clock and say how much you care;

You want to silence the talk that she’s not there to share.

But you smile and chat amiably to family and friends

And hope they do not notice your world is at an end.

But she knows that you will carry on because she told you true

That if she had to choose again, she would still choose 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.
