Lingers On In Memory

We can’t know why the lily has

so brief a time to bloom in the

warmth of sunlight’s kiss upon its

face. Before it folds its fragrance in

and bids the world goodnight to

rest its beauty in a gentler place.


But, we can know that nothing

that is loved is ever lost. And no

one who has touched a heart

can really pass away, because some

beauty lingers on in each memory

of which they’ve been a part.
