Yahrzeit Light Prayer

Why a light for a yahrzeit 
The yahrzeit light shines with the light of their souls 
The yahrzeit light glows with the love  they shared with us during their lives 
The yahrzeit light dances with the laughter they brought out in us 
The yahrzeit light allows us to look back and remember the best of times we shared with them
The yahrzeit light reminds us that although the dawn comes up without them, they want us to go on and carry out our shared goals 
They brought light into our lives and the yarzeit light reminds us that they are counting on us to leave a shared legacy to make this a better world 
We must take this external light and rekindle the light in our souls
In doing so they live with us as long as we live 
Through us may their light glow on
