His cheeks sink in, countenance concealed and dull.
His still lips wrinkle down to a frown, without tone.

Premium Member The Funeral
Rifles cracked
A bugle played
I stood in the grass
Beside your grave

My eyes were dry
I couldn’t cry
My lack of grief
Was justified

In your presence
I treaded soft
Never knowing
What’d set...

Walking along a graveyard
Looking for my father’s grave
Seeing all the gravestones

I begin to sense the spirits
Of the restless dead
They linger around the graveyards

He died as he lived
Without making waves
Without fanfare
A simple man
A humble man

And devoted father
A man of principles
Of integrity
A dreamer
A macgyver
To live with integrity
