Stillness

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Stillness

Eternal lights flicker

In a distant sky.

Where have you gone;

Why did you die?

When I first saw you,

You stole my heart,

And until this awful day,

We have never been apart.

I look to the heavens,

Hoping to see you anew.

Where have you gone?

I’m searching for you.

My painful cries

Fill the dark of night.

I need your arms

To hold me tight.

Where have you gone?

Show me the place

So I can once again see

The smile on your face.

We met life’s challenges

And somehow made it through.

But how do I do it

Alone without you?

I know you are in my heart,

But I long to see your face.

Memories of yesterday

Leave only a trace.

There’s emptiness now

That nothing can fill.

I so need to find you

So I, too, can be still.

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.
