Thread Name: Thoughts on Si Kahn's songs
Subject: Lyr Add: MEMORIAL (Si Kahn)
Spaw, I agree entirely. And when experiencing the loss of a beloved friend, these simple verses are so appropriate and moving:


MEMORIAL
(Si Kahn)
As recorded by Si Kahn on "Thanksgiving" (2007)

We come today to say goodbye
To one who held us close,
To tell the stories of his[her] life
That move us each the most.
These memories of a life well lived
And of a death well faced
Are now a part of every life
That crosses in this place.

CHORUS: No circle has been broken here,
No one that stands alone.
The threads of life so lately broke
Are woven through our own.

He'd[She'd] hoped to see us all again
That gather here today,
But though we will not meet again,
We'll meet again some way,
In work we do, in songs we sing
In struggle and in pain,
In battles that we fight as one
We'll see his[her] face again. CHORUS


--Stewie.
