Graveyards - Poem by Sandra Martyres

On All Souls Day- armed with candles
The family heads to the graveyard
Time to pay our respects solemnly
To the deceased members lest they
Remain forgotten forever in the earth
Each one bends down to light a candle
And place it on the cold gravestone
Of a loved one- now in another world
But not before reading the epitaphs
Grandfather's is the most impressive
'Here lies a man -Husband and Father
Devoted to God and his Family and
Last but not least - Ginger his Dog,
May his soul rest in peace ' Legend
Has it that he wrote it himself.......
