The garden of the dead
Some tranquil summer nights I’m led
to walk the garden of the dead.To wonder in this bone filled yard
that others simply disregard.
I stroll amongst the sacred grounds
see ancient graves,and newest mounds.
My eyes see rich men’s marble stones
protects their once loved precious bones.
Aside a cross marked paupers grave
no wealth he shows,for soul to save.
Stand hushed at ground where infants sleep
were husbands hold own wives that weep.
And peace at last their rifles down
the brave who fought for land or crown.
Are free from war and pain and fears
I shed for them some mortal tears.
My warmest thoughts to each I give
but know my time on earth must live.
So promise as I walk away
the fullest life will live each day
