My Epitaph - Poem by Valsa George

Below the vault of this moon lit sky
Make a grave and let me lie
In joy I lived and in joy I die
And wish to see no one cry

This you carve on the grave I lie
“Here is some one, though a small fry
Had a heart as big as a mountain high
Who with songs of love, every heart did tie”

    you/i had this in Part B of August 2017's showcase/show case. BUT it is SO good, and you offered it this time; for the August usage i borrowed it and notified you. i DO see (on the poem you sent in a message) that you took my suggestion and added where to I lie. 'God' bless you! but you did not change it on this page! ! ! hee-hee.

    where will be in the September showcase. it is such a good (and short) poem, anybody who already read it should enjoy it again. i have enjoyed it again!

    p.s could it be that i did not put it into MyPoemList yet? ? ? i'll take care of it.

    So sorry...... it just went over my head or slipped out of my memory that it was already there in your August showcase...! Please don't take the trouble of posting it again! I shall send another!

    before the days of required PH topics! ! ! my 2nd comment...........4 years later. but we haven't gotten any older..............have we?

    This you carve on the grave I about where i lie. AND you shouldn't really lie; the truth is (usually) 'the way to go'! ! ! !

    this is going now into August 2017's showcase. and i will also accept a second one from you this month if you would like to suggest one.

    yes, i agree with Diane where-did-she-go? Hine. your epitaph is very finely woven. and i'm sure there is SOME truth in it also.

    In your search for poems for your showcase, I am happy to see some of my old poems being unearthed. Otherwise they would have gone into oblivion. So very glad to know that this will figure in your August showcase. Thank you Bri! No idea where Diana Hine has gone!

    Beautiful, so beautifully written.
    Want to join the others in expressing my wish that you have enough time to write a million more poems before you need an epitaph

    A perfectly composed Epitaph - very forward thinking of you (we very much hope) . (Report) Reply

    Your Epitaph- -surely to be written after many many years - -has been so well composed by the poet in you with a mono rhyme to captivate one's heart! So many great people have written their own epitaphs but this one tops the list! The last two lines are exceptionally true with pulchritude! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful epitaph and your words are genuinely true...
    May it be inscribed so after 45-50 years from now.
