At your house, before the funeral,
I saw a picture of you.
I couldn’t help but cry.
It was kind of funny really....
you were drunk, had a bottle in your hand
and was having one hell of a time.

We left your house to see you off.
“Free Bird” still echoes in my ears
today, almost a week later.

I stayed for the entire funeral,
I even watched them so uncaringly
place your air-tight crypt into the cold ground.

They threw dirt over you like you had never
been anything more than a cold corpse
without feelings.

That’s what hurts the most.
Not that you have died and gone;
hearts always move on.
I’ll miss you, and the worst thing is knowing

that some people never knew you.

The loss of someone you love or care about deeply is so hard to deal with. You can feel your pain in those lines but, one thing you are doing, is finding a way to deal with the pain....That is through your writing.
Take care...
