Today I gaze upon the morning sky,
Remembering those we loved, who are no longer by our sides.
Can they see the beauty of the Earth below?
From the clouds above, can they see the passing seasons?
Do they hear our complaints and all our reasons
We wish for warmer days,
Hours without insects,
Winds to dry up the mud,
And a break from the sun’s rays.
Do they smile when of life’s hardships we grumble,
Like us, do they cower when we hear the thunder rumble,
Can they feel the splendor a new season brings us?
I hope so.
Maybe it’s my melodramatic self
To remember our loved ones today. But I vow never to forget.
And the beauty of today’s world, I won’t ignore.
Yet, I’m still so excited to see the new life Spring has in store!
