Looking for the words for that Funeral occasion? Here is some new work by Azriel Johnson.
What once was a fire is now a burnt out ember.
The ash has cooled, but we all remember the ember.
I remember the last days we spent together
the feasts we had in November.
I remember where we were the day the world

Your name lingers in my heart
like a once scorching branch now burned to an ember.
