Spring Remove Death's Cloud

Spring come remove
the cloud of death
surrounding me.

Bring bright blooms
sprouting from green grass,
not the vases of funeral flowers
adorning coffins.

I have said too many goodbyes.
Pieces of my heart torn
and buried in the dust.

My soul a trunk of memories
digging through what was,
trying to escape the grief.

Spring you are my prayer;
my hope I can be renewed.
Send your sunshine
to help me crawl out of the dark.
