Bury My Name Under Your Tongue Poem by shannon wright

Bury My Name Under Your Tongue

Rating: 4.8

Bury my name under your tongue
the way I will bury yours
because if my name escapes your lips
surely your heart will call out to mine
and start us to grieving again.

Bury my words like hidden treasure in your heart
the way i will bury yours
because if you mourn for me
i will match your tears
and start us to grieving again
