A small flower in full bloom,
A set of well-used chairs;
A shadow hidden in the gloom,
A strand of long black hair.
A gravestone belonging to another,
A story never told;
A young boy crying for his mother,
A treasured bat, now old.
Speak we do, and cry we must;
Yet who will hear our words at last?
The passing walker to which we tell,
Or the stone-cracked wall whom we know well?
