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

  1. 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. 🙂
