'Tis our fate.......

'Tis our fate.......

A Poem by Gee
"

And then we are no more,dead and buried

"
Then nothing but memories
grief shadows the heart,
flower covered the box
on the old horse drawn cart.

Dark suited the bearers
heads bowed,stepping slow,
resting the passed loved one
before the grieving front row.

Heart wrenching the readings
echoing off the cold stone,
of the old village church
for this love they've all known.

Whose life play now over
the final curtain slow drawn,
here the end of an era
whilst elsewhere new born.

"Dark suited the bearers,

Its more then okay! It was sad but ended with a little hope. Death is hard but knowing life will keep going make it a tad bet easier. I really loved this poem.

I LOVED the last lines that one life gone another is born.
After the death only memories of us heed the living ones.
Thanks for sharing!

Hmmm, who knows. Thanks
Superbly done Gee. We go the way we came and life goes on, eternally. Even reading this, I pictured the people, the church and the graveyard as muted and still, as if even Mother nature stops the breeze to pay her respects.

Cheers Nemo, always appreciate your words
Of life and death... we are are all in it together! None of us know how long our lives will be, but we do know that we must die one day. Sad but true. Poetically described, even though the subject is of necessity a sad one.
