An All Souls Remembrance

Loving God,
A candle burns in my heart
and warms my soul.
It never flickers.
It never wanes.

It is the memory of those I love
who are now at home with you.

I ask you
to keep them close to your heart.
Keep them in the bright flame
of your love.

As I prepare for my own journey,
help me to understand death as
but a doorway
to new and eternal life.
