Final day~by rldubour



Final day

A full military funeral with
the bugle playing taps
Not one seat was empty…as
time quickly did elapse.

We gathered for our last farewell
to send him on his way.
And let him know he will be missed
every single day.

The twenty one gun salute echoed,
on this rainy day.
While Tom was dressed in uniform
in the coffin where it laid.

The folding of our flag and
given to his wife.
This last day did signify
the end of his dear life.

Prayers were read and family cried
until we meet again.
Not only were you our brother
but also our best friend.
