Poem’s Revisited (Veronica May Elliot)


I wonder what you are thinking

When you wander past me

Buried in your grief

For someone else further on

 

I have been here for 100 years

Been forgotten for most of that

All my friends and family have died

Not even dead flowers decorate me

 

If you squint at my headstone

You can see my name, Veronica May Elliot

I left no children or husband,

Dying as I did at twenty

 

Next time you pass

Could you place a flower on me please?

Because then I will feel less lonely

Knowing that you care
