Memories Left Behind


memories go gentle into the night
Reflecting the stars around the moon,
You will always be a shining light,
A radiant glow dispels the dark gloom.

With warbling voices of many singers
In heavenly realm of angelic voices,
Hearts cry out in righteous memories,
Songs you brought to mass choirs.

Joining the Lord now on another terrain,
Clutch the shadows between earthly cares,
There you will hear again before we reign
Immortal songs briefly gained in tears.

In laden flames that glows faint in the night,
Memories converged on the path left behind,
You will always be that shining light,
Leave the impulses of songs in our mind.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
