Funeral Heart

FUNERAL HEART

~

there’s a funeral in my heart

i hold it for you

candle light flickers

and flowers in my room

a life’s worth of grief

comes rushing through

from the belly of the body

i’ve used for a tomb

~

i couldn’t accept

this stillborn death

so i’d charge myself up

like a defibrillator set

i gave every ounce in me

and even more yet

praying if i was stronger

your needs would be met

~

but i’m tired and i’m heavy

and i can’t go on living

in the shadow of this fear

oh this fear of your passing

the truth is we lost this

before i could save it

i will no longer bear

what has always been broken

~

i can’t

i won’t

i am better loved alone

~

then your spirit left my chest

and mine stepped through the door

her dew drop eyes shining

asking who missed who more?

when she wrapped her arms around me

i fell to the floor

i no longer have to

hold up anymore

~

welcome home

welcome home

when i let you go

i came home
