A Memorial

Love wasn't enough to save
those who died
The candles they lit
on Friday at sundown
The baking of challah
The gift of the Sabbath
The mezuzah on the front door
didn't protect them nor did
their holy books
Yellow stars
sewn on garments
set them apart
counted them as other
tamped down the love
they offered

brought forth the righteous ones
who lit a candle in the dark
who saved lives
