Rest In Peace Martha

I was at Martha’s funeral standing

Next to the solemn somber undertaker

And the giddily dancing young child

I’d rather remember you the way

You are in those happy photographs

All bordered by that rectangular Frame

Weeping mourners sit politely by now

Some are your family and friends

Many never once even met you

Are you in Hell, Purgatory, Heaven?

Your fate has already been decided

Our lives all go on regardless

Though the parts that once were

Intertwined with yours are now still

In those photographs and our imaginations
