Never Again

I went out to that place of stones,
Where dear ones lay deep below,
And I begged the cool earth to release,
The sweet faces I used too know,
But never again, the cool earth said,
Never again.

And there I dreamed in that lonely place,
The sound of voices I could hear,
And my heart stood still, and I felt a chill,
Might it be those I loved so dear?
But never again, the cool earth said,
Never again.

With sad heart, I began to whisper,
In hope a reply would be heard,
No sound came, no one called my name,
And from the earth no spoken word,
And never again, the cool earth said,
Never again.

There in silence I began to ask,
Just one more kiss, one more embrace,
A smiling face, a tender voice?
One moment in time, a moment in space?
But never again, the cool earth said,
Never again.
