A Poem for Death

I cannot find a poem for death;
something that will hold the love
and torn bits of my soul
at my father's passing.

I would write one
but my fingers are too raw to hold a pen.

Yet all other words seem like paper bells
against my grief's resounding peal.

I cannot be
the only one
to lose the father
that she never had.

How can I place
this symphony of ravens' wings
upon a white page?

I am sorry to hear of your loss. This poem is beautiful and would be quite moving at his service IMO.
Hugs,
