" Something bigger than oneself "

              For those we have loved, 
                         those we have lost 
                                    and those we have never met.


                         We are One.
                         I am a part of you.
                         You are a part of me.

                         You are the heart of me who never returned
                         courageous and brave  standing on a battleship
                         silently waving good-bye to everything and 
                         everyone you ever loved.

                         You are the haunting shadow of the past
                         who chose passion over quiet resistance
                         who chose noble warrior over gentle stillness.

                          You are the memory that lives in me
                          selflessly flying missions on the untamed wind
                          mapping out the intricacies of our future freedom.
                          You are a part of me cut open, wounds bleeding
                          heart beating out of your chest with fear
                          swallowing tears and moving forward into
                          the unknown darkness.

                          We are One
                          I am a part of you
                          You are a part of me
                          We will never glimpse the beauty of the
                          Universe in each others eyes yet
                          every atom we share of our Truth and
                          our Legacy gives me the strength to fight for
                          Our peace.


   "A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
