Light up a Life Poem

 Light up a Life

A special tree

for special people


lit to remember

to celebrate

the light they gave.


Some are named

others are not.

All are in our hearts.


There are memories of shared Chrstmas's

when their light

vibrant against the tinsel

sat with us, giving and receiving gifts.


Now they share the gift of memories

of happy, joyous times

which never die

kept alive, by us

for them.


As the ligths switch on

as the stars shine

they shine.


Feel their glow.
