As the Heart Remembers Spring

Some will be remembered

For their fortunes or their fame,

And some will be remembered

For the naming of a name.

But you will be remembered

As the heart remembers spring,

As the mind remembers beauty,

And the soul each lovely thing.

You have been the skies of April

And the fragrant breath of May

And like the season’s coming,

Warm spirited and gay.

You have given freely

Of the beauty of your heart,

And you have made of friendship

Not a gesture but an art.

You have been as selfless

In the gracious things you do

As the sun that shares its kisses,

As the night that shares its dew.

You have planted roses,

In lives that lay so bare;

You have sown encouragement

To those who knew despair.

By spirit’s inner beauty

In every lovely thing,

You will be remembered

As the heart remembers spring.
