A Chain Rhyme


by damommy

The creeping vines conceal the graven stone
of one once loved, but now lies here unknown.
Who’s buried just beneath this mound of gloom,
in time obscured by tendrils overgrown

when no one came to tend this solemn tomb?
Perhaps ‘twas here this poor soul met his doom,
a casualty of long forgotten war,
struck down and died in heyday of youth’s bloom.

But somewhere, loving hearts are waiting for
the knock that’s never heard upon the door,
to open to their boy’s sweet smiling face,
not knowing it will come again no more.

The sands of time will leave no hint nor trace,
no tales to tell of bravery or disgrace.
The tightly woven ivy, its embrace
forever holds the mystery of this place.
