LEAVE FLOWERS at grave sites,
On street corners, and at memorials.
Leave candles and letters,
bundles of sage
or crosses made of twigs.
Let all know
That they are not forgotten,
That their lives,
No matter how short or long,
Made a difference.
That their names,
Famous or unknown,
Will never die.
Their presence in this world
Changed it, touched it,
Marked it in a unique way.
