In Remembrance of Love


White lilies draped,
on wooden boxes of despair.
Eyes solemn cast: to the earth.
As we remember those we love.
Tears too many,
shroud fragile forms.
Shattered and empty.
As petals fall, like
peaceful snow.
We remember our love:
whole long ago.
Sweetly rest and heaven blest.
Safely home.
