Put bird feeder by my stone,
so I will never be alone;
plant a tree, apple or pear,
flowers to give the spot some flair;
at least some grass, but do not trim,
so people might come on a whim
to share the earth with one below
lined up along this cemetery row.
A marbled bench would be so nice,
or birdbath for some added spice;
I do not want my resting place
to be unseemly, lacking grace.

Thank you. Several have said they liked the rhythm of it.

This is nice. You have managed to write in lighthearted manner what is normally treated with sobriety without losing the delicate touch. 7
