The cross at the side of the road by chopkins2x3

The cross at the side of the road

A symbol of faith

That marks the place where you breathed your last

And stands as testimony to a life well lived

And as a tribute and memorial

For those who loved you

And love you still

It is a token of remembrance and affection

The wood lovingly worked by our brothers’ hands

Hands that once worked side by side with yours

Building, repairing, constructing,

And often playing

Wreaths wrapped in red ribbons

Symbolizing the family circle and blood once shed

Upon the highway

Needlessly

Oh how we mourn your loss

And wish for time to turn again

To happier times

Alas we must walk this road

Of sorrow and of pain

Until at last we see your face

In the world that never ends
