Graveyard - Poem by David Wagner

'There was this very old man'
'Everynight he would leave his quite home'
'He would walk down the street'
'He would go and sit in the graveyard'
'Everynight it was the same'
'But this time a very strange man'
'Had walked up to him'
'He had handed the old man a a letter'

~The Letter Read~

Why is it you are here
Without sheding a single tear
Is it that you wait for your end
Because you could not be mended
With those haunting memorys of the past
How much longer could you last
Are you strong enough to drive these fears away
And keep them at bay
Day by day
Night after night
