Flowers and wreaths
Covered in white
Painted light through the walls
Of life, shining through
Waking past, the grieving
Wake of a gathering
That waited, wanted, prayed
And now gutted
In a show
Of emotional departure
Far moved away
From self conscious composed
Selves in a cloud of smoke-filled
Delusional incandescence
Sudden holiness
Warmth in the cold
Hands of my obituary
