Absent friends, and long departed,
light a candle in my name.
Meditate upon the hour,
I will feel your flame.
As the fire reveals its essence,
so is spirit of the Light,
where in Love's eternal presence
I still hold you tight.
Would that God, who in His wisdom,
wrought us in our earthly form,
unchain Heaven's greatest power—
join us free of harm.
