Re: Where is this Inscription from?
As an apparent take-off of your poem.

When I discovered my GG Grandfather's stone
it was inscribed with:
As you are now,
So once was I.
As I am now,
So you will be.
The stone was placed by his second wife.
Death in 1895. He was not an educated man, so I would assume either he knew of it and requested it or his wife thought it cute.
I find many of the ones in the 1880-1900 time period to be very poetic in nature.
