Elegy on the death of my grandmother

Its hard to comprehend
These rules that never bend
The rules of separation
The rules of death….

Not a single soul is spared
Not a single life is safe
All laid naked ‘n bare
Upon that final cradle

When you become a child again
And forget all the pain
And go back to the land above
To where you came from..

A thousand deaths happen a day
All goin’ through that darkened way
But the sorrow that surrounds yours
Just won’t go away

The strength of my youth
Is passin’ by
The ones that were with me
Have fallen behind

I’m still waitin bidin my time
Unsure, unaware of when I’ll come
Come up there to be with you
And then…we can be together…forever
