Empty urn. Pulled from a shelf.

Designed by hand with care.

Brought down into the morgue,

No more an idle vessel.

Protecting a soul,

Preserving what should not

Be seen. Loved one close by.

No more a vacant capsule.

An item of remembrance.

Connection still strong,

Taken home and placed

In a spot to be viewed.

Housing a ghost,

In a place of memories.
