Death

This day is as long as life, and I am anxious for it's end.
The wind is a blade, stripping the warmth from my body

In this moment all other moments ceased to exist
Here at the edge of reason, undone I reach for your hand

Lost in the memory of your kisses, I forget to remember my anguish
I can no longer bare the pain of your loss, I long to be released from it

My heart is torn from my chest and lowered into the ground with you
As the stars fall on your closed eyes, we surrendered you to the sky

This is so delicate. It creates a picture in my head. I can see a child looking, eyes filled with tears as her father's casket is lowered into the ground. It creates a sad feeling in my gut.
