Sad Goodbyes

As I lay down in this box of wood, As I start to close my eyes;
As I let my last breath free for good, I think of all those sad goodbyes.
As I prepare for my last journey, As I leave my loved ones behind;
I think of how things could have been, But are now just sad goodbyes.
The forever scent of roses will follow me wherever I go,
The last sounds I hear are mournful cries.
The velvety touch of rose petals beneath my fingers
Will forever remind me of those sad goodbyes.
My eyes are now closed, my heart has stopped beating.
God has forgiven all of my lies.
The sun shines down on my eternal slumber
And my soul floats to Heaven amid those sad goodbyes.
