Dear Ancestor,
Your headstone stands among the rest;
the beauty to be shown.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
it's too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
you died before I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
many centuries ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.
