  Remembering Laurie
   


If you've been in extreme circumstances- it doesn't have to be cancer, it can be the death of a spouse, AIDS, anything- and you've been lucky enough to survive, it's incumbent on you to live the best possible life. What's the point otherwise?

-Laurie Beechman, as quoted in The Washington Post, 1996

 

Should your days be filled with storm,
Should your nights be chilled and windy-
Find yourself a rainbow
And let it sing you a medley of its colors

If it be too dark to find your way,
If the road be frightful and lonely-
Turn your eyes to the rainbow
And worry not where your feet should lead

Dare to embrace it with your heart
Surrender to its magical glow
Dance onward, entranced
Never looking down, never looking back

When the showers subside and the rainbow must fade
You might find by your side a pot of gold
Yet how much a treasure or a miracle
can be a monochrome object?

Celebrate the rainbow forever,
Let it live on in your heart
And you will always have a guide;
You will be richer than you'd ever dreamed

poem by Faith L. Burwasser, 1999
