Eternal rest... Poem by Dorota Szumilas

'Autumn rain
a woeful tune
is playing'

about those
who have passed away
and those left behind
with memories
reminiscing and longing

autumn rain

envelopes crosses
covered in
yellowed leaves

embraces them in mist
and they become mystery
the mystery of eternity

November rain is falling
on the memories
of those
who have passed on
to their eternal resting

it shields them with fog
but uncovers them

to their beloved
who light a candle
and pray

'Eternal rest grant onto them...'
