Now I realize how much comfort I had
Seeing you lie there even though lifeless
For somehow in that mummified physical presence
Inside the decorated wooden box you now called home
I found rest
You were gone but was still here with us
I could see your face and those hands pale but familiar
But now you are actually six feet under
The ground your permanent home
A contract signed with nature forever
I can never again see your features
Even when I miss you miserably
How I crave for just one more chance
To say the things I never did thinking I would when I saw you next
Now to have a glimpse of you
I have to close my eyes
Questions I will have for fate
Why you had to leave
An answer I will never get back and that applies to you too
