Memory within a Soul Song


Thousands of
Memories circle
The stars in
Clouds of dusty
Recollection
Each one
Tossing itself
Above
The others
Hoping for
A sign.

Dance
Dance
The dance of
A meteor
Flight
Bursting from
The bubble of
Forgetfulness
Release
The tears and
Sing
Sing
The song of
A spring
Melody
Where birds
Unite under
One nest and
Awaken the
Life
Within

This is
The spiral of
Remembrance
The love of
No regret

This is
The acknowledgement of
What once was
Shifting from
The shadow and
Resting with
The sun

Breathe in
The memory
Breathe out
The pain—
The moment
Between is
Where we are
One and
The same—
The father and
Mother to
All we
See is
The granddad and
Mom to what
We believe when
We hold in
The stars
The promise of
What’s past
We hold in
Our hearts
What can not
Last—

They drift
Above
Hanging on
Hoping
We find
Forever in
Our soul
Song—

We are
Alive in
Something
Beyond
The past and
Releasing the
Memories
Is what
Allows it
To last—
Not in
Regret or
What once was
But in
Who we
Are and
What we have
Become

So sing to
My memory
Sing the
Song of
The soul
And give
My memory
A sign to
Let it
Know
I am alive
Growing roots
Living by
The warm of
The sun
Nurtured by
The ground of
Life and
I will not be
Caste out to
Dance with
The stars but
To dance and
Sing and
Sing and
Dance with
What is
Felt when
Remembered with
A heart that is
Not divided nor
Split apart in
The pain of
What is
Not

So Dance and
Sing—
Sing and
Dance—
Dancing into
The night but
Please don’t
Forget—
Keep my memory
In the sun
Remembering
My soul is born of
The morning star
Touching
The horizon of
Forever.

I am of the light
Dancing and
Singing
With eternal
Delight and
When I move
Among the stars
You can only
Feel
My flight—
I burn within
Your heart
I burn beyond
Your sight

This is my song
Living of the light
The memory of
Love among
Those that have
Gone beyond
Remembrance and
Are silent
With song

This is my song—
My soul singing
Song giving
Voice to those
Who have gone
Beyond.
