Sun High

Updated on February 8, 2015


She made that push to the grave,

and then fell back like a wave,

the poor woman was wild,

bending her knees,

as her emotions would pile,

trying to get free

of the men that were holding on to her,

so blind with grief she couldn’t see,

it was such a sad day,

as she pushed and pulled

trying to get away,

and wondering why death could hurt,

her knees on the dirt,

there wasn’t really much to say,

as the fellows tried to pick her up,

just to move her away,

others were just standing around,

quiet, grieving with no sound,

while she was kicking on the ground,

her heart would melt,

and she too wanted to die,

that’s how she felt,

as her little boy’s spirit would fly,

soaring like an eagle,

through God’s sky,

and under her sobs,

she wanted to know why, oh why,

as the boy’s spirit reached sun high,

and there wasn’t even a cloud

in the sky.
