Heart Shaped

A heart shaped
casket caressed,
sanctified with 
sorrows blessed.

The many times
I've oft spoke
To the mahogany
 grains I stroke.

There endures a
memory past,
Of a promise
bonded to last.

Until death
do us part,
Engraved on a
casket heart.

Sometimes it's only
grief that'll enfold,
A treasure more
priceless than gold.

An ache that burns
deeper than pain,
when only the
ashes remain.
