Burying You

Burying You

A Poem by Angela Hunter

A jolt speeds my heart at the sound of my phone
But I know it’s not you that causes the tone
My spirit falls and I wonder where we’d be
If you hadn’t found heaven; if you’d stayed here, with me
My future looks empty without promise of you
My hope of a life together, never to come true
I pray you’re better off, up there on a cloud
But I’m shattered, though I dare not say it aloud
I push to move on, but every piece of my life
Reminds me of you; I could’ve been your wife
No being on Earth could even compare
To my best friend; my confidant; my realistic pair
I look on your face but you cannot see mine
It’s an angel you look on; a being divine
As I dig you a grave, you look on with uncertainty
But it’s not you that I bury, it’s just your memory
