A tombstone stands with grace
amidst the others in its company.
An angel stands above one stone,
a cross on one, another an American flag.
All mark those that have passed over.

When I die
perhaps a flower will be
on mine. A token or
memento to remind me
or others that perhaps nothing
is forgotten, only lost.

They only speak of death and cause. Yet, they will all return to dust, even the Pharaohs pyramid

Always wondering
I suppose it is a thing that humans do separately from other species; we wonder "what if" and "what could be". To wonder what one's epitaph should be as a means to leave some sort of image long after the final breath. I think it is the impression one makes during life that is most worth remembering.

Good thoughts
