Some things I could not say at the funeral

He is so not dead.
I know his body is in that box
I know it has probably rotted by now
But I see him everywhere:
I don't know how not to.
In the dirt on the stones,
in the rushes by the river,
in the moving of something.

I see him and don't see him.
Beast and god.
I loved him and hated him.
Desperately needed him.
Could not bare him.
He is so not dead.

Not until I'm dead,
and even after that,
I would still be careful,
if I was you.

As long as there is memory people do not die. In families and loved ones they live on. This is a very nice piece.

Tell me about it! I know this feeling. Some people never die in our minds.
