Soul's Peace

by Joy Sy

Dirt upon dirt
falls on the casket
Hypnotic is the beat

Handful of memories
flash before me
in endless repeat

Your brother stands across
watching with reproaching eyes
Sorry dear Uncle
I do not know him well enough to cry

Too many years, anger filled my veins
As we pray for your soul's peace
I wish myself the same
