R is for Remember Me

Broken tombstone in revolutionary war cemetery

Broken Tombstone in revolutionary war cemetery
After flesh dies
And stone breaks,
After life tries
And death takes,
Remember me.

When hopes end and fires rend
When silence reigns on frozen plains
Remember me.

Before the last hill shakes
And the last heart breaks,
Before the last ship sails
And the last bloom pales,
Before the last tree falls
And the last song calls,
Remember me.

Before the last ones know
They’ve seen the last winds blow,
Before void and rhyme shift to swallow time
Remember me
Remember me
Remember me

    1. Thank you so much, Yvonne! I’m happy that you like them. The photo was taken at this cemetery that contains graves from the Revolutionary War days. Very old, and many are cracked and broken. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Blog hopping from North Carolina during the #Challenge. Happy to find this blog and look forward to catching up on your posts. I am now following. A gardener, a writer, these posts call to me. I have been writing about hotels and inns, the architects and setting. Come and learn something more about fixing tea or ordering tea at a lovely hotel.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
