For those we have loved and lost along the way.
How our hearts ache at the memories.
The promises uttered.
Whether it be death, or time,
Or painful realizations that now find us
At a distance from loves that we cherished
We light a candle
We take a walk
We go and lie down
For those we have loved and lost remind us that we are here living
Open to the light.
– Robert Monson
