Remember the children, we ask tonight,
As we continue this wave of light.
Remember the babies, never given a chance,
To grow, to play, to love, or dance.
Remember the toddlers, just starting to live,
Teddy Bears and blankies and big hugs to give.
Remember the children, who grew strong and true,
Maybe struck by an illness that devastated you.
Remember the teen-agers and the promise in each,
Taken suddenly or slowly, beyond our reach.
Don’t forget the adult child, fully grown,
Whether 18 or 80, we still called them our own.
Our grandchildren, sisters and brothers have died,
For nieces and nephews and cousins, we’ve cried.
Some of us say, “I’ve lost my dreams,”
While others say, “my memories.”
So tonight we remember with this candlelight,
So like our love that shines so bright.
