Gedicht der Woche 

 

 

Silence falls

 

And then there falls deep silence

As the men come walking in

With their faces stirred and somber

From the grief that lies within

 

And in lockstep forward march they go

Left, right, left, right, left, right

The heavy burden weighs them down

But they keep steady all despite

 

And as they lower down the coffin

Now you can hear them all

The mother, sister, father, friends  -

Their sobbing fills the hall

 

And after last goodbyes are spoken

And good memories are shared

The death bell’s toll then fills the air

Mourning the loss of the adored

 

And then again the room falls silent

As the men come walking down

With their faces stirred and somber

Following the priest's almighty gown

 

And in lockstep forward march they go

Left, right, left, right, left, right

The heavy burden weighs them down

But they keep steady all despite

 

And as they lower down the coffin

Loud cries now fill the air

Of the mother, sister, father, friends -

For she’s no longer there
