Loveland, Ohio

Pop Poetry on Cemetery Landscapes:   Here's all five verses of "Tears." Union Cemetery. [2015]

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "Goodbye."
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to love you
No one will ever know.

But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times,
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.
