Struggle

I have watched you struggle
Lending a hand when I could
Offering places of haven
Leaving the rest to your taking
Gone
It happened so fast
Not wishing this on anyone
Alone, lost 
So we claim
  we pray
    we gather
Representing all forgotten
All pushed to the side
Because the least of these
Are ours to step up and claim
Ashes to dust 
We are only dust
