Forgotten

No name appears on my stone
there are no flowers strewn
grasses grows knee high
full of thorny brambles

How did this come to pass
that so soon I am forgotten
no longer in memories am I
no one tends to my grave

Yet but a few short years
have passed since my death
my name once on many lips
now only sighed by the wind
as it passes my resting place

Now, forsaken, forgotten
out of sight and out of mind
nothing now remains of me
just my crumbling bones
moulder away deep in the earth

    Yes, it is awful to think that when all the people we ever knew well have passed on, we too will be forgotten. I guess only those that knew fame have the possibility to at least have their memory preserved and I suppose that is why we all want fame!!

    I really like this. The loneliness of a corpse is quite intriguing. Great work!
