The light shines on your face
as you lie in the colbalt casket
your spirit simmers,
Our pleasant morning conversations
over Chock Full O’ Nuts, bagels and scrambled eggs
as Channel 2 news rouses the activities of the day.
My fierce advocate, like a builder
repairing a difficult task
your strength gives me comfort and guidance.
As the sun continues to rise
your heavenly presence will forever stir throughout-
