A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Taken From Me

I’m sitting here in my room, looking at your picture,

wondering why you couldn’t be a part of my future.

Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,

while my heartbeat starts to race.

Asking God why he took you from my life,

it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.

I still needed you here.

You were the one to make everything so clear.

You are a part of me, and I am a part of you.

When you died, a part of me died too.

I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love

until the day you went to heaven above.

Even though I can’t see,

I know you’re up there watching over me.

I miss you more and more every day,

and all I can do is pray.

In my heart you shall forever remain.

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.
