Grief be mine, I ask you so,
If not for you, I wouldn't know,
How life once was and then be still,
How so precious, that death do steal.
When I haven't seen your face,
Or felt the warmth of your embrace,
When you are but a thought,
Just a vision I have sought.
A surprise! A surprise! What will it be?
Bringing it closer, 'cause I wanna see.
Is it a prize? or maybe a gift?
Oh, does it matter? My spirits have lift!
A lock of hair trimmed, with ribbon so sweet,
A bouquet of flowers, pressed to keep,
The baby dolls resting, from hard play,
Sympathy cards, are with them today.
So many feelings inside to explore.
discovering one, then some more.
Emotions come out! I implore.
a thought to put down for evermore.
Always missing, never finding,
On the path that's ever winding-
Around in search of you,
(It was all I knew to do) .
The blackest cat I ever met,
That is why I named him Jet.
Was Jetty, that he came to be,
The little kit, who came to me.
There's a place beyond the veil,
That's hidden physically.
How can I doubt my Lord is real,
Because I cannot see?
Rosy red berries, picking so sweet,
Such is a tempting and heavenly treat.
Rinse under water, cut off the green,
