A signpost for my ancestors

To my ancestors, I remember you
and send you my love as I resurrect your visions in this life.
The world is different now.
I give you the past, and you may rule it –
and in exchange, give me the present and future,
Because the divide of the universe makes it so I must live beyond you.
Live in the past and know you are remembered –
Make me proud, and I will do the same for you.

– Diana Rajchel

This came to me today, one of those whispered visions I get while making tea and minding my own business.
