Tomb couplet
同裘成一夢
安土好長眠
埋骨何须故里
盖棺便是吾廬
延謙自題

Under the same quilt we have the same dream 
Just bury me and let me have a deep sleep

No need to bury me in my hometown 
For when you close the coffin lid, that will be my abode

A Poem by Tan Ean Kiam : Remembering my wife at her tomb during Qing Ming 

The grass grows green during Qing Ming 
My tears stream down as I touch my wife's grave
When she was alive we used to quibble over trivial things 
Now it wrenches my heart, when I think of her

(translated by Yik Han)
清明日省墓悼內

清明時節草茸茸 
棖觸妻墳淚幾行 
未死每為閑事鬧 
只今我反百廽腸
