Memorials of those who lived and died

Headstones etched with varied dates and names

People just like us who lived their lives

Whom still remain a part of us today

Humanity’s resting place of those gone before

Ahead into eternity – we shall follow

Reminders of a truth we can’t ignore

A foreign passage we must one day swallow

To walk along the headstones and inspect them

Midst markers full of those I didn’t know

For me a sense of kinship and connection

While my heart fills with reverent overflow

Graveyards; not a place of fear or anguish

Just reminders of our fellowmen who passed

To think that one day sadness will be vanquished

What joyous thought – for such to come to pass
