My Son’s Funeral



The gathering is at the church although

There is no religion manifest.

It is merely the community designation

For family, friends and acquaintances

To unwrap their possessions of the past

To indicate their unique value

And bundle them in common package.

There is some conversation,

Some flowers, some neutral melodies

Rendered on the proper somber instrument.

The package then is addressed, stamped,

And posted to eternity.
