Not Left Behind

Easy does it now
With steady hands
Where you set it
How you handle her
Gentle, careful now
There's nothing left
But respect to all
That we lay rest

And even if you never come around here
Past today
In simple lines
All we've loved
Not left behind

Speak the words
But say them carefully
How you send her now
To just our dreams
And don't talk to me
As if you knew her well
Reciting idioms
For Heaven and Hell

My heart is breaking
Like the flowers
Making waves upon her chest
All we've seen
All we've loved
Laid to rest
