My Death Day

I'm awake. 
In a coffin. 

Watching you.
You're sad, but
Silently relieved. 

Now that I'm 
Dead you are 
Free to return to 

Though I can see
You, love. 

Rigor mortis and all, 
Cold body, the icy pupils. 
I stare up at you, 
Waiting for a tear. 

But there is only a 
Smile from you.
