Dear Ancestor,-
Your tombstone stands amongst the rest, neglected and alone
The names and dates are chiseled 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.

  -----------'MV Clearton'---------------
Clearton was torpedoed and damaged by U-102 about 180 miles W of Ushant on July 1, 1940 at 11.55 hours and became a straggler. Two hours later, she was again torpedoed and sunk in position 47.53N, 09.30W. The master (John Edward Elsdon), 24 crew members and one gunner were picked up by the HMS Vansittart, which had just sunk the U-boat, and were landed in Plymouth. Eight crew members lost their lives and are commemorated at Tower Hill, Panel 31.


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 crypt

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
