      Dear Ancester

      Your tombstone stands among the rest:
      Neglected and alone.
      The name and date are chiseled out
      On polished, marbled stone.

      It reaches out to all who care
      It is too late to mourn.
      You did not know that I exist
      You died and I was born.

      Yet each of us are cells of you
      In flesh, in blood, in bone.
      Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
      Entirely not our own.

      Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
      One hundred years ago
      Spreads out among the ones you left
      Who would have loved you so.

      I wonder if you lived and loved,
      I wonder if you knew
      That someday I would find this spot
      And come to visit you.
