dear ancestor, your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone. The name and date chiseled out, unpolished marble stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist. You died and I was born Yet each of us, our cells of you in flesh and blood and bone Our blood contract and beats a pulse entirely not our own dear ancestor. The place you filled 100 years ago spreads out among ones you left Who would have loved you. So I wonder if you lived and left. I wonder if you knew But someday I would find this spot and come to visit you.
