We remain as a tribute to the loved ones we have lost.

We are here to guard and keep the memories of those who have gone before us.

We are left behind to carry on for those who will follow in our footsteps,

holding tight to the honour of all those who have led the way.

Fear not, your life and love is engraved in our hearts and our beings for now, and forever,

You will be remembered by countless generations in the thumbprints of our souls.

We are the carriers of the torch of life, and must not fail,

until the day, in turn, somewhere in the mist,

we hand the torch over to our children, and we become the remembered.

Written on June 10, 2010 by Sharry Anne Stevens in honour of yet another friend who will be leaving us soon, another name to be added to the long and growing list of friends and family who will hopefully, someday, be united in whatever life we find after this one.
