Ashes To Ashes

by Thomas K. Hunt

If you leave before me
I'll still keep you close
Introduce you to friends
As the hostess with the most

The urn on my mantel
I'll keep polished and bright
There will be no dust
On your ashes at night

And if I go before you
Will you still keep me near?
Everytime you dust me
Will you shed another tear?

Keep me safe and dry?
And always air tight?
Please keep the dust
Off my ashes each night

We'll be together
For eternity
I'll come join you
Or you come join me

Ashes to ashes
Both free of dust
Ashes to ashes
Just the two of us


Author's Note: My Grandparents request was to have their ashes put together when they both passed

So touching ... sad but beautiful work of art.
