Why has the world
given up the love?
Nothing left
for anyone
He'd be here today
if it wasn't for humanity
perhaps he'd be sitting here
instead of lying beneath me
The ground is soft
above your grave
I stroke your headstone
remember your name
'Rest in Peace
Lonnie Ugene Parrish
you'll be dearly missed.'
I kiss the flowers
fix them nice
leave them for you
this is goodbye
