Voices At The Wall - Poem by AHO Speaks

Each name etched in black granite of stone
Lost to humanity for gone is the skin and bone.
I am now long gone and among the dead
What right did you have to destroy me; often said.

To remove me as a human from this earth
Before I had the opportunity to share my worth.
Gone forever to hold any children in my arms
To fulfill my role to insure they come to no harm.

Moments now gone to love, hold and to touch
The girl of my dreams who I loved so very much.
To walk under the sun and also the rain
I cry for my life to gladly do over again.

Now unable to taste or drink the wine
Removed from this sphere of light and also earthly time.
