“TO THE LIVING”

To the living, I am gone;

To the sorrowful, I will never return;

To the angry, I was cheated;

but to the happy, I am at peace,

and to the faithful I have never left.

I cannot speak, but I can listen;

I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.

So, as you stand upon a shore

gazing at the

beautiful sea,

remember me.

As you look in awe at a mighty

forest and feel its grand majesty,

remember me.

Remember me in your heart,

your thoughts, and memories of

the times we cried,

the times we fought,

the times we laughed,

the times we loved.

For if you always think of me,

I will never be gone from your side.

“REMEMBER ME”

Remember me with a smile and laughter…

and if you need to cry…

cry for your brother and sister who walk in grief beside you.

And when you need me…

put your arms around anyone…

and give to them, what you need to give to me.

I want to leave you something…

something better than words or sounds…

Look for me in the people I have known or loved, or helped in some special way…

Let me live in your eyes, as well as in your mind.

You can love me most,

by letting love live within the circle of your arms, embracing the frightened and sad ones…

Love doesn’t die…

people do.

So, when all that is left of me is love, give me away as best you can…

I’ll see you at home…

where I will be waiting.
