Ceremony: Memorial Day



The ceremony was short

sun shining by the grave

tears all around

remembering all that he gave


The widow has tears

memories fill her mind

of things they had done

the ties that bind


In the midst of her sorrow

she fills a small hand

looking into those eyes

she sees a great land


In that smile

she sees all his dreams

being able to be fulfilled

he is not as far away as it seems


In those small hands

there are things to be built

perhaps a cure for disease

or a house with a tilt


Suddenly he seems

not so far away

feeling his love and joy

he is in her heart to stay
