We Shall Remember You

Updated: Aug 17


We shall not remember you this way,

tethered to oxygen and unable

to get around on your own.

No, we shall let this go

and remember long walks on the beach

and picnics in the park.


We shall not remember you this way,

with itchy skin and oozing wounds.

No, we shall let this go

and remember roses with honeysuckle

and flowers painted on trays.


We shall not remember you this way,

with depression, frustration

and a sharp tongue.

Rather, we shall remember

sparkling eyes, a gracious smile,

and a strong spirit.


No, we shall not remember you this way.

Rather, we shall continue to carry

the best of you forward

in our own strengths and passions,

letting the rest go with the wind.


So, be in peace

and know that Love endures.
