Revere The Dead

What remains of mine will you bury
Or perhaps even cremate?
What rituals will you perform
I will only follow my fate

As I arrived, so will I leave
Not a sigh shall be heard
Nor my shadow be traced
Through the realm and beyond

Unrecognized I was while vibrant
Fading away you paid no attention
I will carry with me my secrets
Like an ancient civilization

To be spoken of, admired
For a millennium, even five
How do you revere the dead
When you never valued me in life?
