The Ascension of Vapors

When we lowered you into the ground
My cries broke the barriers of sound
Not having you around is hard to bare
Even today, it feels like it still ain't fair

But the trumpets blare signaled it was time
Your ascension to Heaven felt like a crime
I'm not saying you weren't worthy of wings
Just that it hit me harder than a bee's sting

Like I'd been in the ring with Muhammad Ali
Tears blurred my vision until I could not see
This'll be 8 years now since you've departed
I must honestly say, I'm still broken hearted

Uncharted waters is where I've had to sail
Unwavering tides have been like pure Hell
Life's no fairytale; it's a box of chocolates
Oracles can't reveal the type that we will get

I'll never forget you nor would I ever try
Time's just a vapor that'll dissipate til dry
All eventually dies; I was blessed with you
I gotta keep marching til my war is through

I'll mourn you til I join you in the astral realm
I'll adore you til I'm with you at God's helm
Overwhelmed with emotions this time of year
In the midst of commotion, I've learned to steer

Wish you were here but glad you're at peace
It gives me solace knowing your pain has ceased
Save me a huge piece of your mac n cheese
Granny meet me at the gates; pretty please
