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
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)
