At The Graveyard...



When I went there, I could sense the heavy atmosphere,

Under the stars shining bright, tears were falling without fear.

Friends & Family, visited memories, longing for hugs & kisses.

Souls lay blissfully in their graves with grave secrets & unfulfilled wishes…

They won’t rise up to greet anyone; they are very far, though near…
