I never believed in gravestones
A stone left to show your passing
Just a name and some dates
Left standing alone for all time
A place for people to come and cry
They tell you how much they miss you
But that fades and you are left all alone
Yet, a gravestone does not tell who you were
How you lived or who you loved
It merely says that you were there
