The Funeral Suit

Image

another death…

a celebration of life

 

gliding past in videos and photographs

of happier times when life was full

 

a black wool suit for a winters passing

a silk linen blend for warm weathers mourning

 

hanging in my closet never wanting to be worn

 

i’ve had them both for years, through too many a tear

droplets avowing the fabric of a life

 

i’ll slip it on again as my fingers caress

the past fibers of my grief

 

entwined throughout each thread

 

tears plummet onto my funeral suit once more

as I silently wonder how much further pain

 

my funeral suit can bear
