Tears For Death

Tears over death

Not because you’ve left

Without saying goodbye

Oh! I cannot tell a lie.


You departed like a storm

This is not the norm

How strange are some people

I have no idea that so many are purple.


Oh! Lord, I have no words

The shocks are real

The pain is surreal

Even for the birds.


Some have no love

They put themselves above

Everything on earth

Except, of course, death.


We should learn something new

Every single day. We should have a clue

Of what’s happening

In summer and in spring.


Tears not for you

Tears over death

So sad, you’ve left

Everything is now anew.
