Today I laid you to rest

32 20 200 11.16.85

Today

I laid you to rest

I put you to rest

In my heart

In this world

On this earth

In this life

Today I laid you to rest

200 some past days

You took your last breath

Some may say

That was your death

But today

I laid you to rest

Your years’ worth in boxes

All that's left

Of your worldly life

I cradled the ashes

All that's left

Of your earthly life

With your bible’s pages

I prayed to God

For your ever after life

Today I laid you to rest

My heart accepted

Your death

Today

It took me some time

32 years from the day

I vowed yes

With all that was mine

It took me some time

20 years ago

I realized no

Walked away from a bet

Your world

Could no longer

Be mine

It took me some time

To find the pieces

Broken family

Broken love

Heart's broken rhyme

It took me some time

Scaled a mountain

Scared new start

My love

For you

Still stained in my heart

Thoroughly ripped apart

It took me some time

To put us to rest

So today

I put you to rest

I laid you to rest

Way way way

Down deep

Tucked away

In the

Very most

Farthest

Nearest

Place

In my heart

It took me some time

Shaken by your death

God’s final test

It took 32 years, 200 days

And just a few hours

For my blood to cry itself out

For the tears to bleed it all out

For the life

Lost years

You bet that we missed

But today

I laid you

To rest
