As All Souls or Halloween approaches, a reflection on life and death...

A final word laid down to rest
Memory awakes, a name is said
Awaking thoughts of all the best
Life only complete when dead
Moss grows, words fade in rain
Time dissolves all, even stone
Weeps like tears, loss and pain
Of once breathing flesh and bone
A dusty road, the gravestone tells
That death comes to each, to all
Each life of heavens and of hells
Until at end of our days, we fall
In forests of stone, remember here
Those now gone, and once so dear
