Sometimes

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

Sometimes

Sometimes I catch a glimpse,

In softened waves of blue,

My child, my heart …when I see a smile,

I can’t help but think of you.

Sometimes these waves fill oceans.

And feelings string on every shore,

A collections of each memory

And every way I wish for more.

Sometimes I watch for answers

Because each day I call to you.

I ask for faith and courage

And strength…to help me through.

Sometimes I ask for bravery

Like dolphins in the deep,

Because time moves oh so slowly,

And sometimes the road is steep.

Sometimes I want to scream.

This was not what I had planned.

Why you ever suffered,

A mom can’t understand.

Sometimes I hear your laughter

And remember you at play,

But My Child I always miss you.

Not sometimes, but every day.

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.
