Joy, Love & Laugh

8 Dec 2020

Shoya’s necklace sparkled in the morning light.
This morning I placed your picture and your urn by the window and lighted a butter lamp and incense to mark the 6th year of your passing.
The Sun shone bright. The necklace you last wore caught the light. And the beads on them say, “Joy,” “Love” & “Laugh.”

You have given me 15 years worth of all that & more.

May you continue to carry your auspicious presence wherever you are and in whatever form you have taken, my dear Shoya.

And I shall remember to send out joy, love and laughter in your name.

Shoya and I in our younger days. His name Shoya 寿雅 means to age graciously.
