Funeral Poem for Family

Feelings At A Funeral

The author shares the excruciating pain experienced at the funeral of a loved one.


© Ellie
The pain is excruciating,
The pain sinks in,
The tears pour down my cheeks.
My heart breaks like a crushing tin,
I see your eyes,
Twinkling in the skies,
My heart breaks like a crushing tin,
No more tears now,
no more pain now,
No more laughter,
or sadness.

There’s no more feelings,
you do not move.
Lying there in your coffin,
Staring up at me into my eyes.
All the things I should of said,
All the things I could of said.

I miss your smile
I miss your teeth
the whiteness,
and the brightness,
You brought to life.
I cannot stand the pain anymore,
It's time to leave,
you go,
then I go,
It's time to leave.
