Eyes are closed

Everything is buried

Yet the soul

Floats away

Towards the sky


Soaring up

Looking down

Seeing the desolate faces

Those left behind

And sinking down

Back to the surface of earth


Always watching

A silent shadow

Picking up turned salt

And moving ladders out of the way

Silently keeping safe

Those left behind



They see

A shadow

A smiling shadow

One who watches

The space behind them

The spirit of the family


Always there

Making sure

Everything goes

To the best possible fate

And when it is time



To the waiting sky
