When God was done with you
I closed your eyes
crossed your arms
and pulled over the sheet.

You would have
done it for me.

Still, you had no right
to leave a breach
that will never heal,
while I betray you
by living.

people trot out
the clich├ęs:
In a better place;
finally at peace.

Lies of course,
but one:

You had to go,
and we are here.
