ECHOES OF A DISTANT PAST
Echoes of a distant past
can be heard throughout these pages.
Each reflect a life that was lived not forgotten through the ages.
It's more than just a name or date
found on a document in a cold and drafty place.
It's a link of our past ~ tied to our future of
our lives intertwined ~ of our history interlaced.
We cannot live our future without looking at our past.
For written upon the pages of time
are stories of our forefathers that are forever will last.
What lies between the moments of our first breath
and when we perish.
Treasured memories of a life that is lived should
be recorded, shared and cherished.
Every joy and sorrow, every triumph and loss
each and every day.
Bears witness to a struggle that each of us
has to find meaning and purpose ,
To find a better way. Not for the ancestors passed on long ago, but for all the descendants to come.
Our life will never be lived in vain
if it lives on in the heart of someone.
