We Remember: A poem for 8th August, Severe ME Understanding and Remembrance Day

We remember them with sadness that they are no longer here with us  We remember them with frustration that they were not helped We remember them with anger that they are gone For we remember  All the hurt All the denial All the extremity of pain All the neglect All the harm All the harrowing moments All the suffering All the grief And we weep with gratitude For their precious lives For their tremendous personal strength For their utmost conviction For their forthrightness in speaking out For their passion in life For their compassion to others In a hostile, empty world. We remember and give thanks For who they were And who they will always be In our hearts.
