Stories

There are many stories to tell
but they die in the telling …

Voices tremble
and words falter.

Eyes close
on the reality they conceal.

No-one will ever know
these stories -

they remain untold.

The pain is too immense

so they die

in the telling.

    Very beautiful but sad. Coincidental too as I have just visited the cemetery. I was coming to your page to warn you of my Tombstone words incase they offended you.
    The way you have set these words explains well. The cemetery really is one of my favourite places. Thank you

    When I visit my wife's grave I look at all the other headstones thinking of all the life's stories they could tell.

    That's the simple truth and the compensation is eventual peace.
