Waiting quietly,
my hair is combed,
in my Sunday best.
Patiently I'm waiting,
for the others to come.
Listening to their words
laughing to myself,
'cause they really don't know.
I see your face in my mind's eye,
and determine to keep waiting.
I like the feel of my suit
the silken tie at my throat,
the spiffy shine on my shoes.
I sigh, in exasperation.
I should be kinder, in my waiting
'cause I know you have things to do
before you go.
You'll be here, when you are ready.
I relax, and vow to be patient
as they close the lid,
as I hear the dirt thud on top.
I smile inside.
I can be patient, waiting for you,
'cause I have eternity.

This reminded me of the opening scenes in the movie "The Big Chill" - I love the imagery!

I've always thought that it would be wonderful if we could watch our own funeral. Now, you've put it into words. Well done, Sir!
