Marker: Etches of Time

rocky spring cemetery april 28

In the serenity

trees along the way

sits many markers

monuments of another day


Some are etched with sayings

of how life was lived

personal expressions

some are a fib


Others carry nothing

erased by the passing of time

wind and rain cleanse them

stones not worth a dime


Others cluster together

telling of a plague

many lives lost

details are vague


After passing through life

only a marker remains

is this the only story

do we leave nothing but grain


Leaving a mark

an expression of who we are

can be accomplished

we need not go far


A mark is left on others

as we express kindness and love

remembering who we were

a gift from above
