Pain Mask Elegy

Covering your face so cloudy~
I saw the rise of ash~
Flowers red and gaudy~
Loss with days that pass.

Your life one long task~
Of love and play so rowdy~
Passions and anguish clash~
Friends ne’er a howdy~

Loss with days that pass.

Daily nursing your flask~
Untimely illness not ready~
All garb burnt up in trash~
Your life’s work so steady~

Loss with each day that passes.

Seeing your grimace last~
A face and one so hardy~
Covered in crimson lash~
Left in solace starry~
Loss with each day that passes.
