A Crumbling Stone


A Crumbling Stone


 A handful of words to see you home,

 faded etchings on a crumbling stone.

 Dustings scattered beyond blest ground,

 loving tribute becomes windswept bound.


 Awash in tears, undaunted by time,

 memorial to souls long entwined.

 Tracing whispers upon the skies,

 heaven is witness to all our sighs.


 Tribute graven for loss we mourn;

 succumbed to years falls weathered worn.

 Carried by will of lost seasons cast,

 words crumbled to dust trickle past.


 Laid beneath etchings on a stone,

 words to see you into the angel's home.

 "All my love is forever with you"

 with every wind the words come true.
