First cemetery Sunday

a poem by Brian O'Neill, N. Ireland

It was too early for us all
just a few days after Dad's death
I could not bear others tears
and hated seeing Mum crying

It was normal and reasonable to expect
but it was too hard to watch
and I coped with it tearfully
Crying behind a hedge near the grave
