An Epitaph

"Here lies a heart which stopped beating/
When it never learnt to skip a beat./
Here lie the cold fingers which were never encircled/
In the links of other fingers, protective and strong./
Here lies the eyes which never cast down in confused happiness/
When another pair gazed into them steady and deep./
Here lie the cheeks which never blushed under the touch of loving lips/
Only gathered the years of flowing teardrops, of shattered hopes and broken reveries./
Now heart and eyes and fingers and cheeks,/
The stars have taken mercy on you./
Now foolish human blood and bones are surrendering to dust/
So that your weak soul, it may rest in peace."
