Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest,

neglected and alone.

The name and date are chisled out

on polished marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care.

It is too late to morn.

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.

Speads 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.
