Memorial Day - Solace in Sorrow

I had started to write this poem but wasn't able to finish it until a frat sister (who I did not know personally) was murdered.  I finished the poem and sent it to her family with my condolences.  I then recorded it on AcidPlanet (with some small changes) and JTL (John Carter) added his music and mixed it for Memorial Day. Click on the link to listen to it.

Solace in Sorrow

Memorial Day – With Sorrow

Embrace the pain of loss
It is worthy of our grief

Find solace in words of comfort
And never let go of hope

Allow tears of healing to wash over us
Expressions of sympathy to carry us

Let us hold tightly to our faith
Let it sustain us

Cradle the cherished memories
They are ours to celebrate

Full and vibrant lives
Whose spirits now reside

In the presence of their creator
Having fulfilled their calling

And whose love will continue
To live in our hearts until

We, too, fulfill our destinies
And reunite with them in joy
