Bridge over troubled waters

Bridge Over Trouble Waters – Simon & GarfunkelBridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkle

When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I’m on your side
Oh when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you

I’ll take your part
Oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Sail on silver girl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine

Oh, if you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy.  There are times when feel the void left behind by that person when he or she suddenly passes away.  But even when you are down in the ruts, there is no need to worry.  There will always be someone who is willing to give you a pat on the back at the very least.

 

Simon and Garfunkel’s song, “Bridge over troubled waters” reminds us that in times of mourning, we are never alone.  We will always have someone to support us in these dark times, may it be our family, our loved ones or our friends.  The song reminds us of strength and that a helping hand is always given in times of need and sorrow.

 

This is one of the best funeral songs you can play during cremation services.  Like a hug, the song offers blissful solace to those left behind, knowing that even when their loved one has passed away, they will never be alone to face another day without that person.  It’s one of those songs that can give the bereaved some closure, that things will be alright.  They will always have friends and family to count on in times like these.
