We Will Not Forget

Back Story: After being asked to sing Kyrie at Winter Night's 2008 by Mistress Anna, she had mentioned that the only thing holding me back from singing the piece is the fact that it isn't in English. She suggested I filk it. I gawked at the idea not knowing how to filk something of this nature.

Later in the evening, Queen Alethea raised a glass and mentioned that as long as she was in reign, she would toast all those who are no longer with us or able to be with us. It touched me.

So I now bring you a piece I wrote to the tune of Kyrie. And before you begin reading, I would like you all to think of those who are unable to be here.


Raise a glass so far above

To those we've lost, to those we love

They stay within our memories

We will not forget


Raise a glass to those well met

Those we know and don't know yet

In our hearts and in our minds

We love them all

We will not forget


All the lives touched

Every heart brushed

They are here with us

With our tales – we wont forget

With our songs – we wont forget

Memories we hold dear


Raise a glass so far above

To those we've lost, to those we love

They stay within our memories

We will not forget


Raise a glass to those well met

Those we know and don't know yet

In our hearts and in our minds

We love them all

We will not forget


We miss you this day
