Mark Her Passing

Mark her passing with tears.

A thin veil to cover weeping eyes

And a heart that cannot comprehend.


Mark her passing with questions.

Questions that earnestly seek to find a resolution

In a tarnished world.


Mark her passing with light.

Find the brightest light and focus its sharp beam

On the deep and dark recesses.


Mark her passing with hope.

In this fragile place, unite and work to demonstrate

With such passion that none can doubt your integrity and truth.


Mark her passing with love.

Dissipate and diffuse with everyday acts of kindness and humility.


And in our prayers, in our words

Mark each day as a day in which we can

Embrace, hold close, love strongly,

Work devotedly and live humbly.


Mark this day as the beginning, not the end.

Mark this day, walking forward, not divided

But drawn together

By that which unites us.
