Graveside flowers

bless the unholy

standing by

looking down

curious about the

passage through

the path yet taken

by the living

the name now

on stone to live

longer than the

soul beneath

the trees nearby

watching over

changing seasons

absent of sympathy

for this and others

and memories

of names on cards

and voices

not soon forgotten
