Your Baptism

they never sung to you
there was no flock to welcome you

the pastor solemn in his sprinkling of water
over still grave and dirt

your baptism performed
not to save
but to affirm for those on earth
where you safely reside

buried in the gown
that was designed for your welcome
into Christ’s community

which I suppose one way or another
you still were
