They lay hands clasped together,
wrapped in white cerecloth.
They put them in a double casket,
and lay them down to rest in dirt,
Their last wish was written in will,
a chance for them to seal the deal;
ayeh as their souls fled their bodies,
they rose apart and sought the sky.
When cleric prayed and said grace,
the poet came forth and eulogised.
"So long dear lovers, so long.
eccentric how you chose to leave,
absurd how you met your death,
amazing how you lived for love."
