A fate worse than death

a fate worse than death we survived,
lost in thought what could a man possibly do?
the best person you can ever be is you
we laid hands on your empty corpse
we streched hands to touch your soul
we cried sympathetically looking through your grave
we cursed the provocation that sounded your death knell
but again we are here and mourning
crying for our beloved friend

    Your poetic words paint a poignant picture...that death would be better than life. I agree, it is worse for the survivors to deal with the loss of a loved one.
