When my Name’s Engraved in Stone

when my name’s engraved in stone
will you remember my voice?
will it haunt your memories?
or dwell in your darkest dreams?
for once a name’s engraved in stone
it cannot be forgotten

when my name’s engraved in stone
would you bottle up my ashes?
keep them under lock and key
or scatter them on a hill?
and wave goodbye to me
for the last time

when my name’s engraved in stone
will you visit my rose adorned garden?
water the flowers for me?
so people keep me company
maybe they’ll stay a while
and stop stepping on me

when my name’s engraved in stone
do not cry at the writing
or dig the dirt above me
I must stay beneath the earth
and slowly decay
to keep my name in stone where it will stay
