Names on old headstones

forgotten by time,

lives that were lost

with many in their prime.

Weeds and grass

cover where they lie,

unrecognisable to

any passing eye.

Years of neglect in this

place of reflection

where souls were buried

in the hope of resurrection.

Now what is left gives

no reason for hope

to those that remain

who are at the end of their rope.
