To the Ancestors

12 May

To all of those who have gone before us,
to all of those whose love we have known
and who we have loved, to all lost friends
and long-gone kin, to all of those whose blood
runs through our veins, whose faces we see
in our children, whose lives provide for us
inspiration and insight, without whom
we would not be, to our ancestors
of heart and of mind, of bone and of breath,
we remember you this night, we honor your lives,
we honor your wisdom, we find you in ourselves.
Hail the beloved dead–we remember you!
