For They Are Not Dead

Yes, the breath of life has left them.
They are no longer alive like us.
But they continue to encourage us to really live.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.

Yes, their bodies have decayed.
They can no longer touch us.
But they continue to touch our lives.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.

Yes, their voice will never be heard again.
They can never be annoyed with us again.
But they continue to be the voice in our heads.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.

Yes, a lot about them will be forgotten.
They will not be able to remind us.
But we will never forget who they wanted us to be.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.

Yes, they are not really here.
They have long gone.
But they will always remain in our hearts.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.

Yes, they cannot love us anymore.
No one can the way they did.
But we can still love them.
For they are not dead,
Till we let them be.
