ASHES TO ASHES

I WROTE THIS IN 2019 at the time of my mither’s death. The anniversary is tomorrow, Tuesday:

Ashes now to ashes you are dust
In frailty you did die with three loud cries
The earth now holds you tight within its crust

On darkest night your soul was coldly thrust
Into eternity that never ever lies
Ashes now to ashes you are dust

And we who now are left here surely must
Live in the darkness with the light that dies
The earth now holds you tight within its crust

You who with contradiction broke my trust
Now must face the truth, existence flies
Ashes now to ashes you are dust

The words you said are covered now in rust
There is no longer time for all the whys
The earth now holds you tight within its crust

Eternity has called you from life’s lust
We said today our final last goodbyes
Ashes now to ashes you are dust
The earth now holds you tight within its crust

    Thankyou so very much Deborah. It is hard when she was so very abusive, and I want to try and think some nice things about her but it is very hard! ❤️❤️❤️
