The Mourner

Since you departed this life at dawn

I’ve been profoundly forlorn

And my heart by sadness torn.

Your death ? I shall ever mourn.

A beam spread over your pallid face

as they tied the very last lace.

Kith and kin came to your funeral,

yet very few dared watch your burial.

They all euologize you

and bestow praise that is your due.

May you rest in serenity

and I’ll remember you for all eternity.

May paradise be your everlasting abode

away from this life and its load.
