I Stand Before a Piece of Stone

You took your life and left mine behind
It was before God's own time
I stand before a piece of stone

Etched in memory is your name
Feeling numb, how long will this remain?
I stand before a piece of stone

I see others that have come and gone
The flowers galore represent their song
I stand before a piece of stone

You traded your life to go to heaven
If I had known your pain was so laden ~
Mom now stands before a piece of stone

    Holly, this one is heart breaking. Sure hope it is not true. I think ghazal is a really good idea for this message.
