Never Forgotten

Candles lit to light their way Honoring loved ones gone away Remaining through hearts and memories a part of them will forever stay For the deceased, this is their day Sugar skulls galore on Day of the Dead Celebrating the lives lost loved ones lead Maybe they'll contact you upon sleeping in bed Offering comforting words dancing through dreams in your head Festivals and parades with abundance of Aztec marigolds throughout the day Creation of alters gathering together at graves they pray Favorite food dishes as gifts and possessions of deceased on graves they lay On their spiritual journey they help guide them along their way Some celebrate All Saints Day or All Souls Day instead Everyone does things differently within their own home stead Either way we all share similarities in honoring the dead A piece of them will live on forever as they reside in our hearts and our head
