John Hilton - Here lies a woman.

English
A A

Here lies a woman.

Here lies a woman,
who can deny it.
She died in peace
though lived unquiet.
Her husband prays
if o’er her grave you walk,
you would tread soft.
You would tread soft
for if she wakes she’ll talk.
For if she wakes she’ll talk.
 
Thanks!
