In affectionate memory
Sacred at rest
Stone monuments rise and fall
Decaying reflections testing time
A stamp on existence
I was here and this is proof
In the silence and company of you
Quiet solitude of natures urban sprawl
Widows cradle crucifixes tightly in Victorian shawls of sorrow and grief
Ivy clings optimistically to letters on stone
Let my memory populate and wrap the alone.
Crows fly and robins perch on the earth where you belong.
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Gone – in avenues and plots tended and forgot
A place where I feel at home
Kensal Green serenity
Burry me here in this cemetery.
