Living in Spiritual Beauty

rocky spring cemetery april 28

The stillness of the day

 stones of the past

small reflections of the lives

passing from times last


The monuments carry 

names and dates

some rhyme with small messages

too little too late


The sadness lessens

with the passage of time

becoming history lessons

of life lived on a dime


Our bodies are marked

by a small six foot space

leaving only memories

which time can erase


Where is our legacy

it is written in the wind

kindness and loving each other

this part of life will never end


Carried through the generations

lessons to be learned

small monuments depict

what lessons were earned


Going into eternity

loving throughout all time

living on in spirit

beauty in the sublime
