today's a day to remember.
remember out loud.
and cry – if tears come.
and rejoice – if laughter replaces the smile
which replaced the tears.
and for a while, just remember the joys
of your time together.

and today's a day to hope.
because there is life!
life still being lived out day by day
though a body might be wasting away
and after this life, another
and there really can be Hope forever.

and today's a day to pray.
to put hope in action.
for healing and cure
and joy
and salvation
purpose and peace

and today's a day to love.
because love is essential
and life on the margins is no way to cope
in a battle like this you lose your hope
if arms aren't extended
or ears opened up
so draw near and love, love, Love.
