The Place of Remembering

Where deep profound blue

kisses the airy sky,

Emerald green swells splash and spill

into the memories of years gone by.

Eternal purrs from the the ocean’s depths

waltz on the western winds,

Whispering soothing, unspoken words

to the heart racked with melancholic chagrin.

 

This is the place of remembering

cut into the crags of the end of the world,

This is the place of contemplation

where the worries of the mind unfurl.

 

Heavy, calming silence reigns here

where millions met their death,

Drowning out their forlorn cries

that strangled every breath.

Sun-drenched waves sparkle and gleam

like a thousand happy stars,

But they betray what lies beneath,

hiding how many lives were marred.

 

This is the place of remembering

cut into the crags of the end of the world,

This is the place of contemplation

where the worries of the mind unfurl.

 

Lonely breezes dance and sway taking

with them the stories of yesteryear.

New possibilities tumble in on the waves

but only the wise can hear:

Remember the past, honor those that fell

but harness the bitterness of their sacrifice

Heed not, stumble not into anger and vice.

For this is the place of remembering

cut into the crags of the end of the world.

 

Here the old mets the new and

nourishes the soul like the morning dew.

This is the place of contemplation

Where the dreams of tomorrow are fulfilled.
