Letter to Future Soul

Dear Me who either grew or just withered Grace from grace, faith from faith, life from holy life I pray that God will still watch over you I pray that you’ll be healthy in flesh, and whole I pray that you’ll be joyful in heart too I pray that you’ll be rejoicing in your soul You are an absolute stranger to me Yet we’re closer than a sibling or a wife You have just photos of me in time’s sea Yet we are of one spirit and single life Remember to keep your secret promise Remember your gentleness and calm Remember the blessed gospel of Thomas Remember the God-written, blessed, secret Psalm Greet for me my father and my mother Greet my brother and family if they live Greet your friends whom I know, with no bother Greet those friends whom I haven’t met yet and give Watch that you not come to be in the body From You who have passed away in memory Date: 09/18/2021
