I can’t seem to put the right words in place to mark the day and I can’t think of any I’d like to borrow either. I am 4000 miles away from where I feel I ought to be and yet spent moments of the day completely present on an island which doesn’t really exist. On purpose I filled the day with distractions and the warmth of friendship, but the moment has come that I am alone with my thoughts.
You are here. You are all here. Slowly the miles melt away; if I close my eyes I know I am sitting next to you.
Together we will keep the loved ones we’ve lost alive in the world.
