Dear Friend

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Dear Friend

Today is the day you will be laid to rest,

But you know what they say,

God only takes the best.

Everything happens for a reason,

Even if we may not agree.

Just promise to look after us,

And if you can,

Save a spot up there for me.

The thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes,

And even more so,

Because all of this was such a surprise.

But we should never question what God has planned,

Sometimes it’s not meant for us to understand.

So as we sit here and mourn the loss of a beloved friend,

We have to keep telling ourselves that we will meet again.
