I am thinking about a friend who passed away, nearly a year ago now. In January, I wrote him a tribute with Voices Above: A Poem of Remembrance. Today, I pen more words and hope they reach you when you need them. People pass in body, but their spirits live on within our minds.
This is christyb, reaching out to spirits we love.
Passed but Never in the Past
Your memory keeps me warm when
I stand at the stove, stirring a combination of
Beef chunks, vegetables and memories of
You said that I wasn’t being myself,
So now I spoon my days full of determination to
Work hard, blame no one and never
You passed away but never will
My past forget you,
So long as I feed my soul with your
Reminders to receive and give love freely.
Thank-you for being void of chains and
Thank-you for being you.
