Written In Stone Among The Flowers

I see your name there written in stone
Beside so many others to me faces unknown
Do you see me or am I alone
In this place where last respects are shown

Are you walking here among the flowers
Where we laid your earthly body to rest
Where souls are set free to join higher powers
Is this, the final journey of our life-quest?

I see the dates there written in stone
Your day of birth and of your last breath
Are we merely made of flesh and bone
Or does time continue for us after death

I see the words of endearment there written in stone
Do you Beloved Husband my voice hear
Are my words like dust in the four winds forever blown
Or can the words chiseled here comfort you my dear

When my name is there beside yours written in stone
All these answers to me will be finally known
I pray you and I walk here among the flowers
Our souls joined forever among higher powers

    What a lovely, lovely poem this is Donna. A poem anyone who has ever visited a lost loved one can relate to. Congratulations on your poem being featured. I certainly enjoyed reading it. Blessings

    Very nice poem Donna. Starts off very interesting and keeps getting better. The fourth stanza's mentioning of hearing the voice for comfort is probably my favorite part of the poem....and the ending is very good as well. Keep up the good work!

    Oh Jack you are too kind... in just a few days I feel like part of a family. There are many talented writers here so I thank each one who takes the effort to comment on mine. I truly know nothing about what kind of writing I'm doing. Just what I feel
