Grave Angel - Poem by Amar Agarwala
Have been sentenced by the heavens
To keep vigil upon the dead,
Who deserted by their loved ones
Need me to care for them instead;
Mortals walking upon this yard
Forget that the dead are their twins,
They take me for some sacrament
Knowing not I atone their sins;
No complaints for this arduous task
Yet some respite the diggers need,
Find angels of death relentless
Wonder if the dead would take heed.
