something I came across


Recommended Posts

While sorting through some papers I came across something I had forgotten about. It seems that whenever the loss of someone is really bothering me something comes along to help me through. The past few days I have really been thinking about my ex husband Denis. His death was so sudden and my grandson has not been the same sense his death.

Now he has learned a hard truth about some relationships( a girlfriend). I know he is really missing his Paw Paw and that has brought his death back to me. I feel like he is demanding equal time with Johnny in my thoughts. Then I came across this little card that was handed out by the funeral home. I thought I would share it with all of you. I have no idea who the author is but it seems to help me. Maybe it can be of help to someone else

"Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow

I am the sun light on ripened grain

I am the gentle Autum's rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

of softquiet birds in circled flight.

I am the stars that shine at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there, I did not die"
