Army Mom’s Safe Haven

For Woody and Stanley Woodfork

An ancient Egyptian tomb inscription
"To speak the name of the dead is to make them live again."
The Egyptian Book of the Dead


Say my name
'though I am gone

It makes me live again

Don't just think of me ~
speak my name aloud

I am not just dead
wrapped in a shroud

of mystery and fears
and empty hearts

and sad, sad tears

When you speak my name
I come alive again

I will be waiting.
I will be listening
and hoping you
will remember me

So, speak my name
that I might be
set free.
