Song for the dead

They almost called them out again,
The police and searching teams.
To say Alice had gone missing,
Black T-shirt, blacker Jeans.

But this time they knew where she would be,
Though it’s been days since she’s come home.
She’d be somewhere in the graveyards,
Touching all the tombstones.

Wandering the cemeteries
Singing dirges to each stone.
Under light of stars, she tells
“It’s ok, you’re not alone.”

A gesture of reassurance,
By the gentle light of the moon.
Humming the song softly
‘It’s ok, I’m coming soon.’
