And the Cemetery was

And the cemetery was so quiet
It had me wanting to make less noise
It had me wanting to breathe soundlessly
For those who did rest there deserved their sleep

But then, I chose to sit on a bench,
To wonder about life's many events
Why, someday, I shall be here, in this cemetery
Someday, those who did love me shall come and tend to me while I do sleep

I sat and thought about life
About the love that slipped through my fingers
Or rather, about the love that I chose to push away
For it gave me more misery than joy

I sat and thought about life
About my parents and my family
About those who had always supported me
Those who always did bear with my dark moods

I sat and thought about life
About all that I did achieve
About all that I did not
About my broken dreams, my secret ambitions

I sat and thought about life
How unfair it surely is
Revolving it does be, upon a false truth
Revolving and spinning around a web made of its own magic

I sat and thought about life
Death does be the one with the golden crown
Death does snatch us away from our thrones
Regardless of age, creed, descent or lineage

I sat and let  my tears pour down
What is this world all about, for it does have no meaning
Why should there have been places like cemeteries on it
Why is life all about

And the cemetery remained deserted and quiet
I looked all around me and felt like someone was watching me
But I shook off the weird feeling
A cemetery does be a place so lonely and deserted

Someday, my body shall be laid down here
Next to my kin of course
But then, my soul shall be there with the celestial beings
Yes, and then, I shall have things to say to the Maker

Like making sure He did create a world where Death does not form part of it
A world where living itself does be a treat
A world so jolly and lively
A world made of beings so bent on being good and prude

And the cemetery still remained so peaceful
I wiped my tears away
I just knew, I shall be content resting here
I shall be, even if my soul shall keep struggling for a better world

Say I to myself as I walked away
All the other places of the world do be so lively
Only the cemetery does be so lonely
Why, are the dead so easily forgotten?

I walked away with tears still in my eyes and memories throbbing in my mind
Life is just so false, life is just an illusion
What was yesterday shall no longer be tomorrow
Pray, the Holy Books said it right, we should not get attached to anything here!
