Graveyards

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.


If I've added a photo to any memorial, I give you permission to use it for your genealogy. Happy Hunting.

Excellent!
Thank you so much Kate! This is my uncle's wife's family, and I'm trying to collect concrete evidence of their existence and passing. This is very helpful! I love this site because of people like you that take the time to help me link my extended family together.
