Awake at night
Fearful of the light
I don’t recognize my soul
Weak and….
An enigma of nothing
Fading away
My thoughts fray
Burning away
Carbon remains flickering off
Dissipating into the air, floating into the sea
That is all of me and all I’ll ever be.
Samart Funeral Home of Houma, L.L.C. was in charge of arrangements.
