The Fight

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

The Fight

My body’s cold,

lips are blue.

Why did I do this because of you?

I feel the earth below me

like a pillow under my head.

No knives, no guns, but pills instead.

The bottle lays empty,

cap unscrewed.

What did I do? What did I do?

My spirit floats, my body lays.

My lover finds me,

and he prays.

I reach for him.

I’m sucked away,

like a deep crest of a wave.

He pounds the ground,

screaming why, oh why?

I asked myself why did I?

My parents arrive, my best friend too

I thought to myself, what did I do!?

I look away, the pain’s too deep.

My life is over because of me.

I look back for one last glance.

They zip me up in the body bag.

I did this to ease my pain.

I lost instead of gained.

As I look down at my family,

I regret that night.

My life stopped ticking

because of a fight.

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.
