When our loved ones die
We must strive to bury
Only their body,
Not their memory.
Write their stories down
And pass them on.
Share them with your friends
Tell them about the gifts they’ve given:
In this way
The goodness they’ve given is paid forward.
And their death is no longer a loss
But a story with lessons to live and grow from.
May their stories shared help you find peace,
Enabling you to live on comforted by their memory,
And them to live in peace in their heavenly abode.
