Two roses

May you rest in peace


1. Poem

I went to your churchyard today
and left roses
One for you and
One for me

And then I sat down
and asked if you were happy
but you didn't answer
and I started to cry

And a lady came,
and watered the flowers on another grave
and even though we saw eachother, we ignored eachother
because that's what strangers do

And then she left
and I thought
that even though here rests many souls
you feel more alone amongst the dead

And I wanted to tell you
that I am happy
because I knew that mattered
because you said so

And you didn't answer
but I didn't cry
because I knew you could hear me
even though you're sleeping
