Leaves blow around my ghostly feet

like wizened butterflies

all is quiet except the rustle

upon the earth which I despise

old graves are weather beaten

with names no longer read

this is the final resting place

of the long gone dead.

_

Forgotten, well past rotten

only bone and teeth and hair

residing in this cemetery

with those who once did love and care

silently we walk amongst you

best be careful where you tread

this is the resting place

of the long gone dead.

_

You may glimpse an apparition

amongst the browning, swirling leaves

it’s a world beyond the curtain

that no one else believes

you'll only find the answer

when a coffin is your bed

then you'll know for certain

that you're long gone dead.
