In Memoriam 6/16/86

Gone too soon, gone so long, a dozen lifetimes ago;

Blankets and booties to caps and gowns; seasons change, ebb and flow.

We pause; we think; we imagine; we recall.

Piano recitals, horses to show, Frisbee, hockey, ballet,

From the sidelines of soccer to the banks of the regatta,

We daydream; what if?

In moments of silence, alone with our thoughts,

Or gathered together in the raucous din that is our joy,

The light of remembrance shines on in our hearts.

Though we only light this candle once a year,

The memories we hold are always near.

Gone so long, gone too soon, a dozen lifetimes ago;

Seems like yesterday; seems like eternity;

Dozens of lifetimes to go.

 

In loving memory of JBS

  1. Amen, from one who deeply loved JBS for thirty years and who has deeply loved her children for over half a century.
