Carry You Inside (Lyric) by sliver
I walked out to the old cemetary With a handful of flowers today. I stood at the foot of your casket With a few words I needed to say. I echoed the words of the priest As he raised his voice to pray A benediction for your soul; "Requescant en pace" I stood amidst the mourners Alone in that sea of black Till one by one they left And not a single one looked back. I came out here to tell you That you haven't really died, Because as long as I exist I will carry you inside.

Up the ladder: eat what you want.
Down the ladder: Spring Haiku
