ASHES OF MEMORY

ASHES OF MEMORY

The allure of a distant warmth
Discovering images past and present
A reflection appears from within
Ashes of the past come to memory.

Time passes on as a drifting leaf
Reflection from the soul’s wick
Shadows appear in remembrance
From a sleeping thought awakened.

As darkness once now a light
From the tongue it confessed
The taste of memory bitter sweet
Better to have lived and loved.

From the ashes of my memory.

Written by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.

MEMORY

And remember Jesus Christ is the Light, dispels
all darkness...Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and
to dust thou shalt return.. Amen
