What the Dead May Pray

Make us worthy in our passing,

for what we could not achieve in our living.

For Life subsumes death –

and while the evidence may show

we had not fully lived the way we’d hoped,

we have the right to hope

that what failed to thrive

has died and departed the memory of others;

leaving us nothing but a clean slate

in the continued journey.

May all whom we’ve served and transgressed

step aside and cheer us on –

the race is never over.
