By John I. Blair

Although you’re gone
Memories remain
Everywhere you’ve been,

Cling to everything you’ve touched,
Reverberate in every mind
You interacted with.

So long as friends
Exist alive
Who knew you

We’ll keep you vivid,
Sharing your memory
With those who follow.

Ashes in a brass box
Are not you.

Your essence resides
In us alone.
