We’ll Bury You Today- written in 1996

We’ll bury you today,
and I’m not sure what to say.
We’ll dress you in that new suit and tie.
Soon will be our final goodbye.
You’ve left a family gone strangers,
children with broken hearts.
No way for us to pick up our families missing parts…
I’ve asked why this, why today?
I’m not sure what to say.

The loneliness surrounds us all.
As we watch mom hug the casket and crawl,
trying to touch your sweet face once more,
makes me ache to the deep core…

We’ll bury you today,
and there isn’t much anyone can say.
You were loved and now lost,
today we have to let you go…
deaths cost.

An ember of a flame went out.
You’ll be missed without a doubt.
How will I survive this world alone?
Without my best friend, I’m grown.
Little girl for so many years.
What am I to you now? A puddle of tears.

We’ll bury you today,
and the sky has gone gray.
They cover your bed where you lay,
and we’ll not see your face another day.
Rest in peace dad and wait for me.
I feel very sad but I know you’re free.
