The Funeral

In Remembrance…

 

The day was cold and wet

When mourners gathered that day

To pay their respects

 

A hole in the ground

Prepared to receive its host

Dimensions Precise

 

A sombre moment

Casket; polished wood and brass

Slips through bearers hands

 

While words recited

Remind of good times gone by

And hymns sung in praise

 

It’s time to move on

Sadness fades but not today

Eat, drink, be thankful
