| My Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone;
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone;
It reaches out to all who care,
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born;
Yet, each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone;
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled,
One hundred years ago;
Spreads out among the ones you left,
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
