Lights 10/86

Last night as I passed a graveyard
I saw a hundred flickering lights;
glitter amongst the headstones.
I went to them and saw
that they were not lights, but souls,
weeping at their graves.
When I asked them why they wept they replied:
“Death is not the eternal peace they promised,
it simply gives you more time to think”
