Funeral Eyes And Goodbyes - Poem by Ben Paynter

the world's last look
at it all, will not be
the way we tend to
look at something
for the last time

it's always a drawn
out affair, these goodbyes
these hands shaking
other hands grasping
at other hands

where they go you can-
not follow them to that
place in the sky or
down below, tears
can follow a river bed
but you cannot

what was it you were trying
to accomplish with that
kiss of death

when the world ends
there will be a bright flash,
an honest sigh from inside
a blind man seeing light
for the first time
