Book Excerpt: Dust to Dust

It was a cold winter morning

The service was beautiful

You looked like you were sleeping

When I kissed you one last time the warmth of your body gone and you were ice cold

The casket closed

We were led out of the church

Escorted into the cars

Tears flowed

Driving through a town I grew up in

Seeing places that held memories

The buildings aged, some torn down, and others changed

Entering the cemetery cars lined up

We are led out to the spot you picked

Flowers are laid upon your coffin

As the minister says “Dust to Dust” a sharp pain is in my heart.

You’re lowered into your final resting place

My heart is ripped out of my chest and lowered into the cold ground along with you

I will have no rest

I will be lost until I see you again

I know better I know you are at peace

What about me?

A cold January morning a piece of me died when I said goodbye

Dust to Dust

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”(Bible, 2019)
