Had no idea what your poem was about until you explained. I think a poem must be self explanatory or at least the title should clarify in advance..

My name's Michael I go by the name morlep because it's easy to remember. I like free verse and this poem is to a sister i never knew i had until a few years ago. Its a bit sad but not all my stuff is. It also rhymes which is also what i don't usually do. Err, hmm, basically i'm contradicting myself from the first post.
Actually, just checked, it doesn't rhyme. lucky huh.
*Name lost & Nameless
Bury her with me
in the no-one soil
curled limbs sleeping
and beneath the cold’s
we will wait in the Earth’s embrace
convenient in our anonymity.
Yet there are many turns to sleep
and Paupers’ ghosts can linger
derelict within the registries:
name lost and nameless . . .
Wrap my arm around her surrendered weight
to cradle her back against all our dark
as from the impaling of her Mother and death you create
a parent from me.
*Written about the recently stopped Australian practice of burying stillborns babies
(like my sister) with paupers, or john does as some countries call them.
