On This Holy Day, We Remember Them

In memory of all the souls who have gone before us,

Sacred Sorrows prayerfully and respectfully posts one of the

traditional prayers of the High Holy Days:


In the rising of the sun and its going down

we remember them.


At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter

we remember them.


At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring

we remember them.


At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer

we remember them.


At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn

we remember them.


At the beginning of the year and when it ends

we remember them.


As long as we live, they too will live;

for they are now a part of us,

as we remember them.


When we are weary and in need of strength

we remember them.


When we are lost and sick at heart

we remember them.


When we have joy we crave to share

we remember them.


When we have decisions that are difficult to make

we remember them.


When we have achievements that are based on theirs

we remember them.


As long as we live, they too will live;

for they are now a part of us,

as we remember them.
