JUST A NAME ON A TOMBSTONE - EMMA
I walked through the graveyard
And there you were before me
EMMA - just a name on a tombstone.
You won my heart.
Just 20 years old when
You passed away in 1908
Mourned by your parents
For their "Beloved Daughter".
I know no more- why should I care?
Just a name on a cold grey tombstone.
But once you lived
I hope you were happy
I hope your death was peaceful
I hope you didn't suffer
And most of all I hope that you felt loved
I will pray for you and honour your grave
I will try to find out more about you.
Rest in peace dear Emma
Now not just a name on a tombstone.
