Name on a grave stone

Moss covered algae ridden
Memorials, to mans earthly existance
Stand ivy clad in rows
Names eaten away by time
and dates long gone 
all faded into one. 
No flowers or notes to say i loved you
just brambles and weeds in flower
dog walkers and ramblers walk by.
oblivious to even your existance
Eternity awaits them too
as the generations  pass by 
you as a memory lose all importance
you are just a name on a grave stone
in a cemetery full of names 

the end 

I was walking through Crewe's old cemetry big memorials of once important people who's grave stones  now lay derelict and unloved  hence the poem 

ps Q : how do you make god laugh
     A: tell him your plans
