The monument will be fragile for some time
Will you find an empty grave at the end of eternity There will be flowers
Though she was cremated
May we cover her ashes with flowers
The lid of the vessel that seemingly holds the body
Her spirit flows like a river
I’m grasping the absurdity of real currents slipping
