Vines Slowly Crawl

 Life was the wing that gave them flight
 as they soared ever so high
 now death is the darkness of their plight
 where the wind mournfully sighs

 Dry bones bound by eternity's chain
 rest serenely 'neath tall shade trees
 where dreams have decayed with the leafy debris
 and silence is all that remains

 Headstones stand as sentinels
 Along the tree lined path
 Sadness clings to the overgrown vines
 in the timeless aftermath

 Within the muted reverence of this place
 the overgrown vines seem to speak
 with a voice that will oft embrace
 the departed souls mystique

 When one sentinel falls
 the others will stand tall
 Whispering secrets to the great beyond
 as the vines slowly crawl
