This is the time for remembrance,
The time for silence and wisdom
Take my grief and let it wash through my bones.
Allow my tears to flow through the memory of yesterday,
The loss of our tomorrow.
This is the time for togetherness,
A shared ache for what passed, for what has gone
Into the mystery of time and space and forever
This is the time for tenderness.
The moment to give and hold and receive
As we remain
Connected to your beauty, your strength,
This is the time for surrender,
The time to let go into despair and hope.
To hold steady the faith we built
Give me gentle grace
This is the time for love.
