Here's My Flower

I am watching

The cars pull up

To the spots

Where they must park


The day is dreary

Almost ending

Darker now

Than the day before


There was singing

Yesterday

Those old

Forgotten tunes


But now

There’s silence

And shaking hands

Eyes are looking down


It’s much colder

And the ground

Is muddy from

The rain we had this morning


I’m in grey

Because they

Said black

Was “too depressing”


My shoes are soaked

And the wind is

Nipping but I’ll

Ignore that for now


Now we’re walking

And there’s flowers

We each get one

To hold for a bit


There’s a hole

In the ground

And I suppose

That’s where he will rest


It’s been a week

But it was chaos

With books and

Phone calls and dinner plans


It was fear when I

Sang the shakey

Hymnal at the mass

Not a day before


And it was laughter

When we told

His stories over

Lunch at my aunt’s house


But now it’s

Cold and

Now it’s sad

Because he is in that box


You’d think

I’d be used to saying

Goodbye, for

I have been all this week


But now it’s real

And this is it

They’re lowering

Him into the ground


All the things

I wish I’d said

And it is all

Too much


My aunt told me

I was sensitive

Because I had cried

Through out the mass


But if sensitive means

I’ll remember

Him better

I will take sensitive any day


So here’s my flower

And here’s my heart

Because heaven

Has Gained an angel.
