Songs of self-advocacy and self-determination

The Lives you lived

Part 1:  The Dedication

What’s in a name?
A lot if it’s you
Today we give your names back
It’s all we can do

This plaque is a symbol
Of our deep regret
We’re here to tell you
We will never forget

            We will never forget
            We will never forget
            The lives you lived
            The dreams you had

            We will never forget
            We will never forget
            The lives you lived
            The dreams you had

Part 2:  The response

Thanks for what you’ve done
Our memories survive
We can feel your presence
Across space and time

Your thoughtful memorial
Means so much to us all
And to those who still live
May the world hear your call

In the light of endless love
Please know that we’re fine
It’s hard to describe in words
But you’ll find out in time

Be well dear friends, be well

Be well dear friends, be well

Repeat Part 1
