Poetry

“Now you see him, now…….”

“Now you see him, now…….”
Where earth doth bind his bones beneath my feet
No more to see the precious light of day
He lies alone; no stone with words to greet
No cross which marks; nor message to convey
Anonymous in death was last request
No wish for friends to mourn his passing on
Yet here I stand disturbing him at rest
Unable to comply (accept he’s gone)
He lived out every moment as his last
Whilst here among, he was the life and soul
So cruel is fate when die’s already cast
Perhaps aware (for him the bell didst toll)
Now memory’s engraved on every heart
Of ‘Brothers Band’ bereft at his depart
