On Passing a Graveyard

On this Memorial Day, I am remembering and honoring those who died in service. 

On Passing a Graveyard (by John O'Donohue)

May perpetual light shine upon
The faces of all who rest here.

May the lives they lived
Unfold further in spirit.

. . . .

May we reverence the village of presence
In the stillness of this silent field.
