Remembrance Sunday
They are not dead who leave us this great heritage of remembered joy.
They still live in our hearts, in the happiness we knew, in the dreams we shared.
They still breathe in the lingering fragrance windblown from their favourite flowers.
They still smile in the moonlight’s silver and laugh in the sunlight’s sparkling gold.
They still speak in the echoes of words we’ve heard them say again and again.
They still move in the rhythm of waving grasses, in the dance of tossing branches.
They are not dead. Their memory is warm in our hearts, comfort in our sorrow.
They are not apart from us but a part of us for love is eternal.
And those we love shall be with us throughout all eternity.
“It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead”
                                                                        (Book of Maccabees)
