Faded flowers

O'er my head

Once alive

Now with me dead.

Did those I love

My name forget?

Has time erased

That sad regret?

From this world,

I did depart

Amid bitter tears

And broken heart.

Yet here I lie

Now alone,

My named engraved

On sanded store.

Here in *Sheol

My body waits

For Heaven's trump

To seal my fate.

Now strangers walk

Before my face.

With no respect

For this place.

In darkest hours

I'll spend my hours,

With changing seasons

And "Faded Flowers".

* Sheol, The Hebrew name for the abode of the departed Spirits, translated in the KJV Bible as "grave", "Pit" and "Hell". The author (myself) used the translation of "the Grave"
