Graveside Service - A Shadorma

Forsaken,
weather-beaten sign,
your tombstone.
Nameless soul,
the Savior knows who you are.
May you rest in peace.

    actually this is superb Tim, a caring and thoughtful tribute. to those whom once like us now graced this place called earth. and like the last poem i read of yours, brings to mind one of my mine in the same idiom. try my 'Desecration of a grave'

    Tim, very well done, I like this a lot, the first line immediately gets you thinking the soul is forsaken, then your mind flips to all of the nameless souls, and the last two just glide you through it, excellent..David
