Funeral Flowers

He felt her presence,

He felt her presence, Since he was swaddled in blue,

He felt her presence, Since he was swaddled in blue, Heard her voice as she spoke,

He felt her presence, Since he was swaddled in blue, Heard her voice as she spoke, To her newborn son.

She was there,

She was there, For twelve whole years,

She was there, For twelve whole years, Until suddenly,

She was there, For twelve whole years, Until suddenly, She was no longer.

He sat by her bed,

He sat by her bed, Watching her pale face,

He sat by her bed, Watching her pale face, Her hairless head,

He sat by her bed, Watching her pale face, Her hairless head, Praying that she would wake.

He startled,

He startled, As the line went flat,

He startled, As the line went flat, Shaking her shoulder,

He startled, As the line went flat, Shaking her shoulder, As white-hot tears,

He startled, As the line went flat, Shaking her shoulder, As white-hot tears, Pricked his eyes,

He startled, As the line went flat, Shaking her shoulder, As white-hot tears, Pricked his eyes, Like a volcano,

He startled, As the line went flat, Shaking her shoulder, As white-hot tears, Pricked his eyes, Like a volcano, About to erupt.

Her death broke his heart,

Her death broke his heart, And his father watched,

Her death broke his heart, And his father watched, As his son's life fell to pieces,

Her death broke his heart, And his father watched, As his son's life fell to pieces, A's slipping to D's:

Her death broke his heart, And his father watched, As his son's life fell to pieces, A's slipping to D's: A mudslide of pain.

Years later,

Years later, The boy met a girl,

Years later, The boy met a girl, A beautiful rose,

Years later, The boy met a girl, A beautiful rose, That stole his heart.

He fell in love,

He fell in love, But she didn't return it,

He fell in love, But she didn't return it, And the petals filled his throat,

He fell in love, But she didn't return it, And the petals filled his throat, Choking him.

He fell in love, But she didn't return it, And the petals filled his throat, Choking him. Roses.

He fell in love, But she didn't return it, And the petals filled his throat, Choking him. Roses. Her favorite flower.

In his arms,

In his arms, He held his daughter,

In his arms, He held his daughter, A pink-faced baby,

In his arms, He held his daughter, A pink-faced baby, With anemone eyes.

He watched her grow,

He watched her grow, From picking daisies,

He watched her grow, From picking daisies, To picking mums,

He watched her grow, From picking daisies, To picking mums, For her funeral.

Just like his mother,

Just like his mother, She was taken,

Just like his mother, She was taken, All too soon.

He lived on in grief,

He lived on in grief, Turned silent,

He lived on in grief, Turned silent, By the life he lived.

And now he lays,

And now he lays, Upon his wife's grave,

And now he lays, Upon his wife's grave, A curled up skeleton,

And now he lays, Upon his wife's grave, A curled up skeleton, Of a broken man.

But such is the plight,

But such is the plight, Of a man who can't move on.
