After Goodbye


On these stones

Their names are engraved

In this ground

Their bodies are laid

Behind those gates

Many are buried

In the crowded yard

Of the cemetery

But a part of each one

Remains alive

Their impact in life

Forever survives

In the songs, they wrote

The music they played

The speeches they gave

To the crowds, they swayed

Their scientific discoveries

Clothes they sewed

A recipe perfected

Kindness showed

Their business handshake

A model’s face


Unmatched poise and grace

Their impact remains

Because legacies don’t die

They forever survive

After goodbye

Thanks for stopping by!
