THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked on a lonely, windswept hill; Today we talked where others cried for loved ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched by graves of tiny babies;Snatched from the arms of loving kin,In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay in the last sleep of their time; Lying under the trees and clouds -Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hollowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before on a day we'd all like to forget,But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin the graves of ancestors past; To be preserved for generations hence,A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,For stones sometimes crumble to dust and generations of folks yet to come will be grateful for your trust.
