Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands amongst the rest, neglected and alone

The names and dates are chiselled out on polished marble 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 amongst 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.

Lord, help me dig into the past

and sift the sands of time

That I might find the roots that made

This family tree of mine

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads,

On which my father's trod

And led them through so many lands

To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book

Or dusty manuscript,

Thats's safely hidden now away

In some forgotten crypy.

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts

My soul, when I can't find

The missing link between some name

That ends the same as mine
