WE REMEMBER HIM
At the rising of the sun and at its going down, we remember him.
At the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter, we remember him.
At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember him.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember him.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember him.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember him.
As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us, as we remember him.
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember him.
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember him.
When we have joy we crave to share, we remember him.
When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember him.
When we have achievements that are based on his, we remember him.
As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us.
