My Own Funeral

by Daz Amaru

Wish I could have taken better care of my body..
Wish they could have stopped the cancer earlier.
Death called, and now I'm just a spirit,
floating over my own funeral....

If I had my way,
I would have picked another church.
At least one that spelled my name right
On the obituary.

I wonder if they really know that
I truly loved Sonya, but married Charlotte
out of convenience...
Wish I told my brother Kenny, I forgave him.
Maybe he wouldn't cry so hard.

Wish I could tell the choir
How much I really hate that song.
Wish I could tell Aunt May that hat's too big...
Maybe not.
Wonder if CeCe knows 
That the deacons are looking up her dress?

I'm just a spirit...floating over
my own funeral
And I'm sure someone knows the Pastor is lying
I wasn't THAT good of a man....
