A grave in far Away land


I need ancestral intervention
I do not no a tale of this grave
How come not in a graveyard
But in a Middle of nowhere
Where there are people less
A unique grave of our time

Ancestors tell me
Grave near railway
Railway in far away
Its people less here, who talk to you
Where are your relatives?
Who is your companion?
Graves don't visit one another

May be it's my grand father's grave
Man I do not know
Due to his absence in my life
I know of a train tragedy

Ancestors I need explanation
Distinctive grave in land, in People-less neighborhood
It's people less here, who will honor you
A grave is a 'Rest of Honor'

You! Grave of uniqueness kind
You! Grave in middle on nowhere
You! Rest of unknown
You! Peer of unknown, rest in peace
Next to palm tree
