And there it is
Carved in stone
You wanted to be burned
I’m so sorry
My dear
And there you are
Cold as stone
You were always so warm
I can’t apologize enough
My dear
Your name
Amongst all the others
I wept today
I remember when I was brave
Courage is gone
You stole it from me
Buried with the dirt
And the beetles
I suppose
They told me to say your name
Your name
I haven’t in years
My dear
Always my dear
Simply my dear
Too many memories
Too many days
Past and dead, as well
They say I’ll have to say
Your name
Don’t worry
My dear
I’ll be dead before
Soon can come to pass

I can't see you beneath the grass, silly.
