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.
