RDP Saturday: Promises
Your name set in stone
your birthdate carved in marble
a sweet sentiment written in granite to remind us
you were here.
Together they say
Close your eyes, sleep, rest in peace
we will remember you.
Not to haunt us
You will stay here.
One thought on “Evensong”
Thanks for contributing to the prompt. I have mixed thoughts about trying to hold someone here in this world, even “resting in peace” because there’s likely a better place for their spirit to rest. Sometimes the kids and grandkids make such a mess of things, you’re glad the old folks can’t see it happen. 🙂
