Memorial Day again

A time of remembering loved ones
now gone from our presence but
whose influence we still feel guiding us.
Not forgotten, but remembered today.

My mother and father together again
after a very long absence of 62 years.
I love to think of them side by side
expressing and renewing their love.

One day I will have the complete family
I always longed for and come to know
my long absent father better who
has been silently by my side all these years.


  1. Beautiful photos. Remember growing up when the whole family would meet together to remember? Miss those days.


  2. Both touching and sad. We are given great gifts; may we always honor them by treasuring our lives.
