Bio Photo Some say you're too Painful to Remember,

I say you're too Precious to Forget

~Dear Ancestor~

Your Tombstone stands among the rest

neglected and alone.

The name and date are chiseled out

on polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care.

It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I'd exist.

You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you

in flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse

entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled

one hundred years ago,

spreads out among the ones you left

who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved.

I wonder if you knew,

that someday I would find this spot,

and come to visit you.
~Author unknown.~
