It is hard to move on, but it is a necessary part of life.

There is a Dream-catcher over the bed

With threads of black and beads of red

And it catches dreams, Or so it seems,

Of only the resent dead.


In the closet --- the clothing's all black

In ages long past the cloth would be sack

Worn everyday, In an outward display,

Mourning the loved ones not coming back.


Some move on and others will never

Their tears of sadness flow as a river

Across their world, Darkness unfurled

With such intensity that it makes one shiver.


Have heart my friends and those without laughter

Though your soul is darkened by a wicked master

Believe, one day, That you'll see the way

To join them, all, in the great hereafter.
