A Somber Moment

My family is holding a funeral today,
It will be private, we’ve invited no friends,
We honor this somber moment with pride;
Respecting when a loved one’s life ends.

Remembering the deceased’s lifestyle,
We have chosen a burial at sea.
The tides will guide his journeys now
Free at last for eternity.

We encircled the swirling white portal,
Dispatching our friend with regret…
Grieving heads bowed in silent prayer,
As I emptied the aquarium net.
