Sacrifice

In response to picture it & write challenge hosted by Eliabeth Hawthorne.

Creative Writing Exercise: Stardust

Tonight the essence of a sacrificial life ascends the heavens,

A life that burnt with a fiery flame purifying all it came across,

a flame that never burnt nor destroyed an innocent,

A sacrificial life flaming with compassion for both the weary and the strong,

a flame that defended, renewed and nourished,

A simple life marked by daily routines and overlooked sacrifices,

a flame of love shepherding family and strangers alike,

Tonight as we release your ashes to sea the memories of your love and sacrifice

burns bright in our hearts as the heavens welcome you home.

In loving memory of ……
