I tried desperately to move
As my knees began to melt
Tunnel vision down the aisle
Where you waited
One foot in front of the other
But I couldn’t complete the walk
On my own strength
The tears from my eyes
Were too heavy for me to budge
I watched my mother
Battling the same
As father took her weeping body
And held her steady
Carrying her down to the pew
Where we would say goodbye to you.
