names and addresses


names and addresses
for dear friends
no longer on earth
old address book

not yet written
in the overflowing book
cards and envelopes
with last known

still wanting to remember
what may no longer
be current – places I was
people I knew

They that sow in tears
shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again
with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126: 5-6 (KJV)
