Fly Away

I stay perched on the bench in a row far enough away

Away from the cold body lying in the open casket

The sobbing of the heartbroken keeping me at bay

They try to be so nice they even put mints in a basket

The silence becomes deafening until they start to play

The slow music I bet they play for everyone’s saddest day

Laughter erupts from a couple of rows ahead 

Interrupting the loved ones grieving their dead

This is not the time nor the way

Let the beautiful angel fly away

You never know what someone can be going through in their own mind. :)
