The Funeral

written by: Robin McNamara

If I died in the morning,
Would you cry?

Would you visit my grave
With a heavy sigh?

Would the birds stay silent?
As mournful clouds wet the soil,
Of my freshly dug grave.

Would you place a wreath
On top of the coffin?

Encasing my unfinished soul,
And walk away barefoot,
Back down the pebbled path.
