Unintelligible Susurration


Ancestors Rise


From dust you were made
into dust you will be.
The cemetery
is only a memory
or a symbol
of our complete family.

It has no value
in this aspect
but I have respect
so as not to offend
our presence on Earth.

If one would like to remember you
they will remember you from photos
and your possessions
that tell your story
without any hidden secrets.

It was worth going
through all the difficulty;
we can now rest in peace
and not have any doubts
of our own security.

Original piece (written by: UnSu)

De polvo eres
En polvo seras
El cementerio
Es solo un recuerdo
O un simbolo
De nuestra familia completa

En este aspecto
No tiene ningun valor
Pero tengo respeto
Para no offender
Nuestra presencia
En esta tierra

Si uno te quiere recordar
Te recordaran por photos
Y tus cosas que hablan
De tu historia sin secretos

Valio la pena
Ir por todo esa dificultad
Ahora podemos
Descansar en paz
Y no tener dudas de nuestra seguridad

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
