I sit and guard when life is through
And make sure you are not forgotten.
When family and friends forget to come
I make sure you are not forgotten.
When your soul moves to hell or heaven
I stay with your remains.
I stand tall and proud in your place
Proclaiming to the world your names.
I show who you were and may be still;
I tell all about your life.
I also list off your loved ones dear:
Your parents, children, and wife.
My image may strike fear to many,
But they do not realize
That I am here to guard them
Until He comes from the skies.
