Abandoned and Forgotten

Overgrown and abandoned cemeteries emote a special kind of sadness.

Give joy or grief, give ease or pain
Take life or friends away
But let me find them all again
In one eternal day.   1862

Reader remember dye thou must
And after Death return to Dust
Therefore repent, repent in time
The Grave next opened nay be thine.

Lights are from our household gone
Voices we loved are stilled
Places are vacant at our home
Which never can be filled.

Abide with me
Fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens
Lord with me abide.

Death is swallowed up in victory.
