No dust have I to cover me,

No dust have I to cover me,
My grave no man can see;
My tomb is this unending sea,
And I lie far below.
My fate, Oh stranger, was to drown,
And where it was the ship went down
Is what the sea-birds know.

Your Headstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished,marble stone.

It reaches out to all who cares
It is to 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 are own.

Dear ancestor the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among 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.
