This sequel to 'The Forgotten' was inspired by some of the comments I'd received on that poem...

I left a rose upon the rock
That bore my mother's name.
I said a prayer and promised
To visit her again.

To the old section I made my way
Where my mother had shown me
The graves of The Forgotten lay.

She had always said a little prayer
For the long forgotten people
Who lie so lonely there.

I left a rose upon a rock
That bore somebody's name.
I said a prayer and promised
To visit once again.


At midnight restless souls begin to stir
From the back an elderly voice:
I GOT A VISITOR!!!

when i was 10 my grandfather died.
in that cemetry two of his sisters were buried and i thought he would be buried with them but he wasnt... he was laid to rest with the soldiers and i was so angry... separating family and all... i was 10 lol.
are the forgotten of this piece those who faught for their country. who came home victoriously and died forgotten... tucked away in some retirement home with their 'back in my day...' stories that no one wanted to hear... that everyone should have heard...?

i think your meter in this piece kills me.
it has such a natural pace at which to read but it never continues... almost like a hymn thats verses end too early.
i dont know if that makes any sense or whether you can hear that at all but yeah... if you have any idea what im on about i think a coupla minor adjustments would make this piece flow better...

i knew a lady who used to go out to the cemetry every christmas and place little posies on every grave so no one would be without love at christmas...

beautiful =)
