Life at the Funeral.Posted: April 16, 2012
The sky is grey on this damp-cold day,
Somber monochrome circles, umbrellas
signal where to park.
Inside, a sea of black,
Psalms, life stories,
So vibrant, so giving, so loved
In all the choked voices,
all the faces damp with tears,
If only we could have a few more chances,
If we could only have back the years.
Funerals are for saying goodbye,
as well as
Let us give the lives we have
A better try.
