In memoriam (poem)

The casket is open
I'm drawn closer
Have to see her there
Lying in repose
Her body at rest
I reach for her hand
The icy coldness
Anguish abounding
Wells up from within
Wailing gasps from me
Fills the air around
My essence empties
Falling to my knees
Emotion floods out
Until I'm emptied
Only a shell now
Devoid of feeling
All is lost to me
