f u n e r a l s

strange
is the world
of funerals
some
say,

the gone
are gone
as known meet
to offer their
remembrance,

strangers
and estranged
stand together
with the reality of life
dead in front of them,

conversations hover
from stories
of the departed
to those
of the living,

momentary
hallucinations
caused by
the fragility
of life,

coffin in place
tears wiped
normalcy returns
to most
in the blink of an eye.


….for inspite of those
who are gone, we all live
to die another day….
