You Cannot Realize…

You cannot realize how I feel about that little stone
To mark the resting place of one whose life was all my own.
Perhaps years may bring you scalding tears,
Perhaps even goading pain;
They may recall the vision small
Of a little stone again.
Then you may realize what it means to place a memory stone
Upon the plot beneath which lies, a loved one of your own.

– 1933
