Another Memory

by graypoet

Is it just another memory that is made
When a life ends for a dear friend
Family all gathered to share voices
In a song, before the breaths end.

Years remembered with each generation
A woman always giving of herself
So much that all remember a life
By the photos framed on a shelf.

Even with the pain of a life ending
The good times remain so alive
To live a life so well spent
Is something for all to strive.

Family and friends will gather
Once more to recount these hours
There will always be more to each
Than a space to place fresh flowers.

Family and friends will remember Katherine.

  1. This is very touching, GreyPoet. Surely, Katherine was blessed to have a friend like you.

    Your poem is like a seedling, reaching up through a mound of grief, warming yourself in the sunlight of her memory.

    Peace be with you. Beth
