Floating.....

Wish I could have taken better Care of my body... Wish they could have stopped the cancer sooner... I'm just a spirit now, Floating over my own funeral. If I had my way, I'd pick another church. At least one that spelled my name right On the obituary. I wonder if they knew, That I truly loved Sonya, but married Adele out of convenience. Wish I could have told my brother, Kenny I forgive him, maybe he wouldnt cry so hard. Wish I could tell Aunt May that hat is too big. I wonder if Tara knows the deacons Are looking up her dress. Im just a spirit now, Floating over my own funeral. I wonder if the choir knows How much I really hate that song... Hope they know the Pastor's lying. I was not that good of a man.. That suit is not the one I would have picked. My body looks so much smaller, and that make-up makes me look too light. Im just a spirit now, Floating over my own funeral. Free from pain, free from it all. Wonder if they know, In spite of my short time on this earth... i truly enjoyed it. I truly loved it all.
