Remembrance

Frigid, midnight blue,

Relentless seas roll over…

In memoriam…

Shooting star, here, gone!

Lighting our lives briefly. Now…

We shine less brightly.

In the past week we’ve seen 52 individuals shot, including 18 killed. Two of the incidents occurred on Naval Bases, or Joint Operating Bases in Pensacola and Pearl Harbor. On December 1st New Orleans had two mass shooting incidents that killed 2 and wounded 12 others. And, today isn’t over… When? When? When?

Cry out!

Why must These tears fall,
crying, crying, into the night –
missing… missing… we have lost them,
lost them all.

Wheel of time,
you’ve hardly turned before they’re gone.
Turn back, turn back and restore,
restore to me mine!

I will hold you, hold you ever,
in thought, in prayer, in sighing breath,
my child, my sister, father, mother, brother, lover —
here, here in my heart living ever.
Here in my heart,
live forever.
Here…
And still I cry!
