After 15 Lonely Daze

Recommended Posts

I know full well that she has passed away

I was at the funeral home for the wake

I stood sadly at the fresh rectangular dirt spot amoung the surrounding grass

I was allowed to go through her apartment......

and take whatever I wanted ( except for the furniture )

but there's still something deep inside me

that oddly hopes

that I will hear the vibration sound of my cell phone go zzzzzzzzzzzz

and I'll have a cute text message from her

so far - nothing

that's been tough on me too

The way the speaker confronts reality here:

I know full well that she has passed away

I was at the funeral home for the wake

I stood sadly at the fresh rectangular dirt spot amoung the surrounding grass

and here:

I was allowed to go through her apartment......

and take whatever I wanted ( except for the furniture )

... is striking, and his love for the departed is painfully obvious -- he's certainly not interested in the furniture -- but the sense of loss and grief is most pronounced in the end:

but there's still something deep inside me

that oddly hopes

that I will hear the vibration sound of my cell phone go zzzzzzzzzzzz

and I'll have a cute text message from her

so far - nothing ....

This is one of your best works yet, Pawnshop. Stay strong in your faith, and I hope it will get better with time.
