They Dug A Hole - Poem by jJO CAREY

They dug a hole in the dirty dry ground
Just big enoughg to place an ern
With no green arounrd it to make it tidy
They said a few words and thats all ttheir was

i wanted to say so many words
Silence took care of my mind
Many words that told the story
That told off this beatuful friend

I took some roses to be placed in the dirt
Some took them, some didn't
She deserved so much more that this
She lived, she loved, she died

Is that all there is? ? ? ?
Not to me it isn't, she was my friend
Maybe a long ago friend
But oh we shared so much

They say thats all there is, dust to dust
And I don't doubt that either
But she was loved and she deserved better
Friends who wanted to say goodbuy

Respect, love, friendship and a better farewell
For those who loved her so
No way to really say goodbye
No brow to kiss or hand to touch

Not many flowers,
Only an empty dirty hole
In a field of dried grass
They said goodbye and rushed away

I saw not many tears, mine I held inside
For she was like a sister
And I remember alll the memories
We shared long ago, before that hole in the dirt.
