Seraphic Statuary

I heard an angel speak last night and he said “write”
             by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Of the silent mist that’s gathered ‘round
 the timeless graves that bear no sound
Of lives no longer taking breath
 retiring to earth upon their death

Granite sentries tend where departed lay to rest
 enduring monuments to souls that were blessed
Whom families entrust their loved ones with peace
 noble guardians whose protection shall never cease

Exuding serenity without touch or word
 their devotion through our hearts only are heard
These marble replicas of their spiritual existence
 share with the living their eternal luminescence
