Sleep Now, Nana

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Sleep Now, Nana

Although I cannot see you,

I feel your presence near.

I will hold you close in memory

Till I drop my very last tear.

So sleep now with the angels,

And let your golden heart rest.

Although our hearts are broken,

We know GOD took the best.

So dance beyond those golden gates,

And join your loving mum.

I’ll see you when I’m sleeping

And pray for you to come.

And although this pain is painful,

And I really don’t wanna let you go,

I’ll wait for death to take me, Nan,

So we can together one day glow.

Until that day, I’ll close my eyes

and see your smiling face.

I’ll lock you up inside me heart

Until we again embrace.

So rest now, my beautiful Nana.

I’ll never forget how much you have done.

So until my hand meets yours again,

Sleep now in the sun.

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.
