Another Body Laid to Rest

ANOTHER BODY LAID TO REST
By PoeticMeditations

Another body laid to rest
In the cold, dark earth to decay
Another name added to the list
That grows longer with each passing day.

Another hymn sung to comfort
In this hour of bitter grief
Another prayer offered for support
For those shaken in their belief.

Another day of uncertainty
Here today, but gone tomorrow
Another hint of our mortality
Of fleeting lives of pain and sorrow.
