My Final Resting Place

Updated on November 11, 2013

Will you be there

to say goodbye?

It's only right you are

even if you don't cry.

Be there early

before the guests,

play your game

you are the best.

Wear your suit and tie

get all dressed up,

put on your best face

you're that kind of guy.

Noone knows you

like I do youI

know what you did

soon everyone will too.

Everyone will be nicely dressed

in their best dresses and suits,

They will be there

to wish you the best

I said I'd love you

for all time,

That was just before

you're awful crime.

We had a fight

that fateful day,

I made you mad

that much you can say.

I was so mad

I just went to bed.

then you got your gun,

Shot me in the head.

Are you coming

to my party today?

I'll be in my best dress

She looks so peaceful,

they will say.

Turn on the tears

and act your part,

So they think you loved

me from the start.

Today I say my goodbyes

It's not my choice,

you made it mine

you forever stole my voice.

if they knew they wouldn't

want you here,

to play the role

never shedding a tear.

I am up in God's arms

safely tucked away,

waiting with him

for your judgement day

So, are you coming

to my party today?

To see what you did

my body was something

that couldn't be hid.

my coffins pretty

made with lace

this will be

my final resting place.
