REMEMBER US, REMEMBER THEM, REMEMBER ME


Severe ME Day, Aug 8th 2018

We carry them with us
Every day,
In our hearts
And our memories.
They are never forgotten.
Each one has their own special place.
They inspire all that we do.
Each time we speak up,
We cannot forget the injustice,
The unquenchable pain,
The intense, yet mostly hidden, suffering
That led to their deaths.
Each one is precious.
Each person touched our lives
Inspired us,
Helped us,
Were friends with us
Reached out to us.
Each loss is harder to grieve each year.
Each dear soul lost
Is a pain that burns deep
Pushes us forward
When the going is tough.
We remember them
With love.
We remember them
With tenderness.
We remember them with joy.
We remember them
And weep.
We remember them,
Their own sweet lights adding together
To shine a path of inspiration
And clarity for us.
We must never forget their passing
Their pain
Their reality
Their severe level of illness.
Their loveliness.
It must never be denied.
It must remain as a beacon
Till justice and progress prevail.
Their light is a call
To keep going
To keep fighting
To keep faith with the truth.
One day
We must
Surely
Win through.
REMEMBER US
REMEMBER THEM
REMEMBER ME
