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.
