Funeral


Funerals are often said,
To be when people are laid to rest.
An ending to the person’s life,
But that doesn’t feel right.
***
I have found a funeral to be,
Something more akin to a sea.
A long outstretched emptiness before you,
Another journey to be got through.
***
But when all is said and done,
And the day has come and gone.
It isn’t the end of the person’s life,
Just the time to say goodbye.
***
In the weeks and months after,
The person memories linger onwards.
They are not forgotten or no more,
They stay with us for evermore.
