Buried Above Ground

We created a life not realizing it didn't fit
The years spent together brought moments of joy but mostly pain
I finally acknowledged our plight, delusions shattered
But you would not - denying the cancer

You cried, begged, clung to your world 
Finally retreating like a defeated lion
Yet still you asked for the gold
That symbol of commitment - a glimmer in the darkness
I will not foster hope, nor father cruelty

Hurled into a chasm not traversed by mortals
To rest in an unmarked grave a casualty of war like a body at sea
The elements will be the last to wear the band
Committed to returning it back to the earth from whence it came.
