Waiting for Glory

This is something I wrote a long time back...


Waiting for Glory

Lost and forlorn,
Standing alone,
Long forgotten,
Never remembered maybe.

Old and alone,
The walls cracking,
The paint never won its war
Against the elements.

Lovers carve their name,
Etch it for eternity,
Lovers separate,
The names remain.

The authorities come,
Take pictures some,
Inordinate delays,
Keep tourists at bay.

The tomb awaits,
Day after day,
The monument stands,
Waiting for renown...
