Poems: Only Angels Know

image

On sunny day
Do these stones grow
In shady spaces
In many rows
All before
Now come to pass
Rest here now
Peace at last
Some remembered
Forever here
Some forgotten
They lie near
Names and dates
Without faces
Their life stories
Leave no traces
In stone of gray
And a few etched words
Now rest in peace
Among trees and birds
Final solace
Where all will go
To a place
Only angels know
