Hold in Remembrance

Hold in remembrance days of yesteryear,
when friendships firm were formed that lasted long,
enduring through the decades like a song
that never ends. And though we loose a tear
for those whose song has ended, we sing on,
since memory is our Creator’s gift
enabling those who’ve passed beyond to lift
their voices with our own. And each day’s dawn
reminds us that a future yet awaits
the voice of children’s children, and the rich
report of deeds and dreams accomplished, which
the cadence of our song anticipates.
Hold in remembrance now, in every hopeful way,
those days of yesteryear, those years of yesterday.
