To Reaffirm Life’s Inner Harmony

In the midst of turmoil, where to find calm?
In nature recalled, where we found a balm.
The need of strength brings a healing Psalm,
Twenty-three with the gentle breeze of a palm.

It embraces our being for us to proceed
In life’s mission and tasks where G-d does lead,
Amidst outer chaos to plant a seed
In memory of those who did, to feed,

At the table of obligations,
All present and future generations.
We regain complete equilibrium
With love and meaning from their lives’ requiem.

We must all be musicians in life’s symphony
To reaffirm life’s inner harmony.
