Maybe it will take a funeral

A visitation 

A wake

We will make time

From our busy  lives

Packed with work

Laundry , groceries

And excuses

We will hug each other

With teary eyes

And say things like

“It’s good to see you”

“I’m so sorry it’s under these circumstances”

“Let’s get together real soon”

But we won’t

It’s just words

Hot air

Good intentions

We will walk away

Get in our cars

Drive back 

To our busy lives

And forget who we were 

How we were raised

What matters most

And how much we love

Until there’s another

Funeral

  1. So true, Jeanna. Went to a memorial service last week. Must say it was like a reunion – a true celebration of a well lived life. Btw, have you visited the site allpoetry.com? You might consider publishing a poem or two there to gain the exposure your writing deserves.
