Memory

“But the Comforter . . . whom the Father

will send in my name, he shall teach you

all things, and bring all things to your remembrance . . .” John 14:26

Too soon, we face death!

Are the soon forgotten?

Are we soon forgotten?

Too soon, I fear;

they lived and they loved.

We lived, and we loved.

Is this a sufficient memory

For others, or for us?

Only God knows the answer.

We know that Love transcends life;

Love also transcends death.

Love is the bridge between

the living still and those

who have passed on.

The only survivor is their memory;

the only survivor is our memory.

The only meaning is how they loved;

the only meaning is how we loved.

Does memory mean nothing?
