After Death

After Death

Perfect love perfect trust
Candles softly glow
A furtive prayer
A glistening tear
Too often, too many, often flow

Faith and trust
I did, we did
But it didn’t matter

Darkness, light
Brightest star in the night
What a sight to behold

First hello, last smile
Child gone, spirit here
Grieving lasts a long long while

Limits, blessings, contradictions
Fear no evil, you are with me
Flood me with peace, set you free

Life is short, death is forever
Buried, marked, say goodbye
Candles, flowers, memories, poems
And still no answer to “why?”
