Unrequited Funeral

I am the widow dressed in black
Taking a funeral q.d.
My tears always neat in place
I light a candle to squandered love,
Follow my coffin at a slow pace,
Shrug and wave as it descends 
A little deeper every day

I got rooster as a pet
To wake me at the break of dawn
Stop dreaming widow, he’ll screech
We have a funeral today

I drizzle us with my perfume
Give us a polish and a shine
He grabs my leash, and off we go
Bless that rooster, he's my valentine

Asleep maybe I'm happy - awake I mourn
The loss of the man I never had
