The Return

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

The Return

At a time of sorrow, it is hard to believe

That the sun will once again shine.

That’s when it seems you do nothing but grieve,

With all joy being left far behind.

Still, life has a way of starting anew,

A gradual moving away

From heartaches that linger, as heartaches will do,

If you will allow them to stay.

As spring returns to the Earth every year,

Bringing all of its beauty in view,

So merciful time will heal everything,

Bringing peace of mind back to you.

Know in your heart that love never dies,

No matter whatever befalls.

The only ones who never have tears in their eyes

Are those who loved no one at all.

The greater the love, the greater the loss.

Still, it’s love that makes life worth living.

Few are the ones who will not bear the cost

To have shared in the joy of its giving.

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.
