Steven's Day of Memory

It has been so many years now that our family has been incomplete
Torn asunder 
You were taken from us when you were 21
My goodness would be 50 now
An old man!
For the rest of our days there will always be a hole in our family
An empty chair
But we hold you lovingly in our hearts.

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are the messengers pf overwhelming grief, of deep contrition,
and of unspeakable love.

Washington Irving.
