The Shadows of Those Who Have Gone Away

As the morning sun arises,

Take a moment to pray.

Thank God for all your blessings,

And for those who have gone away.

 

Remembering their faces,

And footprints they have left.

Tuck the memories in your heart,

For by them, you are blessed.

 

As the evening moon arises,

Take a moment to pray.

See the shadows ‘neath the moonlight,

Of those who have gone away.

  5. Thank you, Brother. May we never take our loved ones for granted. And, even though pain may come from memories of the loved ones who have left us we should think this: If we don’t have the pain that also accompanies such losses, “what is life worth?” Thanks for blessing me.
