Daylight Funeral

Golden buttons sewn 

On a hungry maiden’s gown

Pale as polished bones

She doesn’t make a sound

She made a deal to stay

But she breaks into a run

Toward one joyous day

Beneath the radiant sun

Her husband whispers every verse

And flowers start to bloom

The spring begins to thirst

For the love that floods the room

As their lips slowly touch

Tears fall from every eye

There falls a sharp hush

 As fate is left to decide

A sad song still to learn

The groom leads her to a dance

Then he stops to give a turn

To give her a final glance
