Organic Loss

 

Burying the dead is life-altering
Gazing upon a face that once danced with light, with life
That now dances no more

Imagine… Some of us must bury the living
And this is gut-wrenching, almost impossible
To gaze upon a face that no longer dances to your light
But dances…still
Ingest that.  All of that.

Hardest thing you may ever have to do…
Make a ghost out of the living
Watch a dead man walking…away

Live…

…with an organic loss
