Burial On The Presidio Banks

The dark day has come 
As we stand on Presidio Banks
We cry
Towards the sea
The waves
Just... so grey
The look on the faces 
So grave
As we mourn the losses of today
The songs start to play
The oceans waves
And we do the same
We say our goodbyes
Then look towards the sky
As the darkness beings to face
The clouds drift
Like the cars pulling away
But I stand knowing
This is no dark day
The days will fade
And so will the years
But not what I hold dear
I will remember this day
As a sight to be amazed
Because I saw
The burial on presidio banks

    Such a sad poem, I can almost feel the chill of the salt air in my face. Well done. ~ Carrie
