Lest I Forget

Written by: Laurie Ginn

The fountain in my office reminds me of you
Your free flowing spirit
The water plays finding it’s own path
The giggling sounds it sings

How many times caught up in work
I’ve stopped 
And smiled
And let your spirit warm through me
Lest I forget

I’ll hike again this summer
I’ll go deep into the gorge
And when we stop at wonder rock
I’ll go alone to the stream
In deep remembrance I'll sit
And feel you once again

A jimsonweed I’ll pick for you
And breathe the bouquet deep
And then I’ll place it in the stream 
And watch the course you seek
