Heaven’s tears rain down

in rivers from the eaves,

cascading down, landing below

in puddles of hushed grief.

 

On the front door opening,

a black wreath hangs silently.

Whispered reverent sounds

ruffle the ebony ribbons.

 

A familiar face stares out of

still photos placed around

the crowded room filled with

subdued friends and family.

 

Smiles and gentle eyes forever

captured for those left behind,

to remember the life and love of

one who didn’t return from war.

 

Comforting embraces with words

of sympathy quietly expressed.

Embellished tales of old retold,

continuing the fond memories.

 

A collection of testimonials and

remembrances will forever

flourish through the coming years

and keep those gone with us always.
