I Much too Much Miss Thee

Updated on July 9, 2013

As I go on by~

I can only imagine~

The soft green grass~

On the hill where you lie.

I can see from my path~

The flowers that sit on your knoll~

As for a fleeting moment my mind feels at home~

Knowing loving hands set them there ten fold.

I do not stop~

For it might hurt too much~

Relinquished now to only conceive~

A walk to visit your resting place where it be.

Upon your grave~

The dirt had been laid~

How quickly to cover you~

The grass grew to~

Still discern a different shade.

I know I never stop~

As I often go on by~

For I am not ready yet~

Since you have died.

I envision a closer look~

As I strain to see ~

The different grave stones~

That accompany thee.

Your stone has not been placed~

Only a few flowers~

To everyone’s eyes~

Distinguish your grave.

I am sorry, yet so far~

I hasten not to stop~

For I know I can not handle~

Your now resting spot.

Just for now~

You must know I care~

For walking into where you lay~

I am not strong enough to be that brave.

Oh yes I know~

Your spirit is not there~

I do believe you are now happy and free~

Yet still your grave close up~

I can not bear to see.

As I go on by~

I can only imagine~

The soft green grass~

On the hill where you lie.

I can see from my path~

The flowers that sit on your knoll~

As for a fleeting moment my mind feels at home~

Knowing loving hands set them there ten fold.

I am sorry~

I know you were so good at visiting loved ones in~

The cemeteries. ~

I only hope you understand~

I can not as of yet~

Stop to see~

The resting spot of your body.

Again I continue on~

Not stopping to walk the green hill beyond~

Forgive me please~

For I much too much~

Miss thee.

      You know, Lisa, there is that one special person, I think, for all of us, where we feel exactly the same. The shame and embarrassment for not going, yet the will to try to remember them the way that they were instead of that final resting spot, even if it is beautiful.
