graveyard poetry

This is from a monument in The Protestant Cemetery, Rome.

The bud was opened
To show the rose
Our Savior smiled
The bud was closed

I have always thought this was beautiful poem, and wanted to share it.

So much sadness forgotten by the rest of us!

The cemeteries don't forget. They're full of little whispers like this poem.
