BETWEEN MY THOUGHTS
I walked between love and hate
Sadness seems more than I could bear,
The grave stones were faded and gray
I wanted to cry, but I didn’t dare.
I gave thought as I walked alone
The grass was withered beneath my feet,
As the wind seemed to twirl around
The lives they lived are now complete.
Calmness came over me this solemn day,
As I made my way along life’s path;
Between my thoughts – what words to say –
A prayer I uttered on their behalf.
Epitaph read: “I once walked where you
are today, live life before it fades away.”
