No Gravestones

…mark their passing

In this place of death
in this place of blood and tears

unending sorrow
no gravestones mark their passing

ever empty skies
leaves that no-one sweeps away

dreams faded to dust
melancholy falls on me

here in the echoes
of so many broken hearts

in desolate fields
countless flowers now blooming
their faces turned to the sun
