Wish elegy

Please write this on my gravestone,
Spring, March, flowers of ’82,
You too must remember me,
Unrivalled, but unrivalled I could not be,
Tunes untuned to hear it gash,
Water rips my inner soul instead,
Silence too shouts deep within,
Wounded words in pain they emanate,
Sounds unclear writhe in head,
Weary, query I am afraid,
Reflection to life turns to shadows and ash,
Wings I need but have no strength to spread,
Empty weak and torn and dead,
Pain ripples all around even eyes of blessing turn their way to left,
Quietly I seek some peace for I pray,
A nebulous voice I hear,
Tired I am, I want to lay to rest,
Thoughts unsettled will rest only in last breath,
As I touch the ground to lay my head,
Cold and dead I am,
No pursuit of anything I have,
Please write this on my gravestone

I'm a constant learner, love watching birds, can spend hours appreciating nature and write canto to describe its beauty....an amateur photographer and a writer, but still love to sprinkle on the white pages with my thoughts, writing is a catharsis for me.
