Greetings

Location

The gold chain with the ruby jewels

Contrasts so greatly with the black lace

Of her mourning dress

Singing a different song of life

 

Contrasting so greatly with the black lace

It dangles on the elegant slope of her neck

Singing a different song of life

In welcoming instead of loss

 

It dangles on the elegant slope of her neck

Bouncing up and down

In welcoming instead of loss

As she makes her trek through the darkness

 

Bouncing up and down

The gold chain smiles at those who shed tears

And laughs with those who cannot

And brings joy to those who have none

 

The gold chain smiles at those who shed tears

She bows her head, the chain bows too

She kisses his forehead

And the chain trails his heart

 

She bows her head, the chain bows too

To greet a long-time friend

She kisses his forehead

She stands and turns head held high

 

To greet a long-time friend

The chain sheds no tears

But stand and turns head held high

The meeting is over

 

The chain sheds no tears

For with loss is not always goodbye

The meeting is over

The gold chain with the ruby jewels
