In Memoriam

In Memoriam
by Joel Howard

Will you please do this in memoriam?
Is the phrase Christ told me in my dream
Pray for the nations?
Suffer with me?
Die for my sake?
Welcome them in? 
Those who have not homes,
And nothing within?
Will you share two thirds of your food,
That belongs to friends?
Will you share them with enemies,
Welcome them in?
"Will you please do this in memoriam?"
Christ said to me
There's a tidal wave coming
Coming from the sea
It's enough to take over
A storm greyer than grey
Will you remember me, Church?
Will you remember to pray?
