Dressing for a funeral

Like weddings
I think of people I know
and get choked up–
My black dress is too
tight.
Well you can’t wear
the red one.

Trying
to stay with the family
of he who died
and show my grief
at their loss
and I do, but

My mind wanders
at some point
between
We have gathered here
to say farewell
and
Give him oh Lord
your peace

To someone else
who I wish was here
to say goodbye
too
