Cemetary of the dead
Stone pillars so old
A graveyard of angels
And stories untold

Withered flowers
Willows that weep
Six feet under
The dead are asleep

A place of solitude
And restless souls
This city of angels
For whom the bell tolls

Time passes slowly
The seasons go by
As the sun goes down
The moon comes nigh

Scurring shadows
Whispering breeze
Celestial voices
And screaming trees

So many gravestones
So cold and so dark
Surrounded by death
The souls embark

On a heavenly journey
Through time and through space
A Psalm of Psalm's
A feeling of grace

Under the moonlight
The angels dance
Leaving the dead
In a peaceful trance

The sun will rise
The day will begin
The graveyard of angels
Is quiet again



 If you want to walk with God, you've got to go His way!

Not sure I would have picked that as a title, but I enjoyed the poem.  Well done.

I LOVE the flow to this poem! I read it in Dark already, but it is just so good, when I saw it here, I couldn't pass it by!  -SEA

If anyone has a title that would be better feel free to post it. I just couldn't decide on one.
