weather-beaten sign
driven down in dying weeds
forsaken headstone
oh nameless, forgotten soul
the Savior knows who you are

I visit cemeteries quite a lot, because I find the history to be so fascinating, and it is sad when I see a gravesite not being taken care of. No one is really gone if we remember them. To be forgotten on earth, is to be truly dead... A somber poem, but also a reassuring and comforting one. Beautifully written, Tim!

I like how you brought to our attention this nameless and forgotten grave, Tim. Very good poem with a subjective pivot and a lovely ending. #7 // paul
