There was a funeral in my heart today


 


I burnt your effigy


And all the memories


I tried to burry


With a handful of forgetting


I tried to move on


But my mind was stopped


By the final procession


As all those happier times


Said their goodbyes


And faded from my memory


Slowly making their lasting marks


Like headstone etchings on my heart


Oh


There was a funeral in my heart today


As I closed my eyes


And tried to blink away


All my thoughts


From a better yesterday


But all the noises


From the procession as it passed


Wouldn’t allow me to


Oh- but there was a funeral


In my heart today


As all my hopes


On happier days


Were put to rest


And my poor little heart


All dressed


In its finest blacks


Made an appearance


Before it gave


Its feelings one final adieu


And my mind was left to bury the rest


As my heart


And its sentiments


Could no longer endure


The sight of the funeral in my heart today
