Set In Stone

Set in stone
Like the letters overhead
When my sleep becomes my rest
Lay a flower on my chest

When I’m gone
And the earth becomes my bed
I have nothing to regret
I have lived and loved and left

  1. Lovely … it reminded me of the first epileptic seizure I ever had. It happened in a graveyard at a funeral and when I regained my senses, I was laid out on a grave with a tombstone over my head. I thought I’d died and the stone read “beloved”

    • What an amazing story, Gillian! I have always wished to attend my own funeral and see my own grave. Interesting that dwellings we keep for only a few years we put so much thought into, but the place we lie for all time we probably will never see. At least you had a sense that you were “beloved” πŸ™‚

      Thank you, my friend

  2. Beautiful epitaph VW..that is what is there to life,live and love
    omg i just read the last comment slide show really VW you are a vampire ..i think a vampire slide show will make others embrace their graves earlier πŸ˜†

  3. Excellent poem VW and like others have stated here I agree with them..

    Im having no stone for the letters to be engraved
    For the Wind and the Valley is the place I have saved
    And the meadow and the brook I will follow on down
    And the flowers are already blooming in the ground…………….

    Love to you my friend……. And we are not going anywhere Just! Yet! πŸ™‚

  4. I wish they had “like”, “love”, and “freakin awesome” buttons.
    This is more than “like”.
