For Those Who Walked With Us by Jan Richardson

October 29, 2013


For those
who walked with us,
this is a prayer.

For those
who have gone ahead,
this is a blessing.

For those
who touched and tended us,
who lingered with us
while they lived,
this is a thanksgiving.

For those
who journey still with us
in the shadows of awareness,
in the crevices of memory,
in the landscape of our dreams,
this is a benediction.

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life:  it goes on.
