A SPIRIT FLYING The other night I sat beside my father's bed Held his hand stroked his head For I knew that he was dying Deep inside I was crying Gazed upon a face so thin The spirit gone now from within Passed over to the other side Deep inside I cried With family and friends By the graveside I stood Slow the lowering of the casket Bright in the sun the polished wood From proffered spade A handful of soil I took Hardly listening to the Prayers read from the good book Allowed the soil to drop Onto the coffin top Then turned my eyes up to the skies Imagined a spirit flying Deep inside I was crying I watched as one by one The mourners left Until alone Then I openly wept.
