Today We Celebrate

Today we weep, 
Grieve the loss which burdens us
Today we mourn,
The empty shell which was left behind
Today we cry,
For those this year that had to die
Today…
We prepare traditional foods
Today we gather,
In honour of their memory
Today we rejoice, 
In the shared lives we had with them
Today we remember,
That they have never left us and so…
Today we celebrate,
Keeping their love for us alive
