Sympathy Saturday: Gone But Not Forgotten--A Poem to the Dean Family



I sit and ponder o'er your life
As by your grave I stand
Of how you brought into this world
The life now in my hand

You came into a muddled world
A small life to begin
Raised by the hands of those who loved
and gave their lives to kin

I think about your pains and joys
Your triumphs and your falls
I never met you in this life
But something to me calls

I feel I know you from those times
I read about your life
Your story lives inside my heart
And calms me through my strife

I feel a closeness words can't tell
I stand here by your grave
So grateful for a legacy
And what to life you gave
