We are gathered here today, to lay to rest the faces of my past.Thinking back to those moments when my heart was filled with you,denying the dark times force feeding myself with memories of your smile and how you had me warm and fuzzy on the inside. Yet still holding back the tears because through all years it was a disaster.
If only we could have imagined that our fears would toy with us like a riddle, apprehension guided us through a world wind that never seemed to end. Let’s tell the truth, disappointment was the only type of love we was use to. If only I could make this eulogy sound pretty. I wouldn’t say that those broken memories never went away, I wouldn’t mention that my heart is congested with the bitter pills I swallowed attempting to numb the pain that followed every heartbreak and oh, how much I wished I could turn back the hands of time.
But it’s time to say goodbye, letting the thoughts of what could have been die. Walking into this newness of life, shedding off the remains of afterbirth I’m living in a different light. My soul beams like the sun filled with a love that’s indescribable and holding on to you only defiles its value. Here’s another truth, as you lay dead I’m thankful for every experience. In remembrance of you, I write this eulogy laying to rest the faces of my past letting old thing die, no longer holding bitterness and anger on the inside. For I smile with pure joy saying my final goodbyes.
