  1. For Danny

    WEEP NOT FOR ME

    Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

    Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

    I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

    Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
    in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

    Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
    I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

    Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
    with a smile and a sigh.
