Do not weep for me for I have not gone.

I am the wind that shakes the mighty Oak.

I am the gentle rain that falls upon your face.

I am the spring flower that pushes through the dark earth

I am the chuckling laughter of the mountain stream

Do not weep for me for I have not gone.

I am the memory that dwells in the heart of those that knew me.

I am the shadow that dances on the edge of your vision.

I am the wild goose that flies south at Autumns call and I shall return at Summer rising


I am the stag on the wild hills way.

I am just around the corner

Therefore, the wise weep not.

But rejoice at the transformation of my Being.

In this life and the lives yet to live, and in the in-between spaces
I will always be with you

"an old tree sways in the wind
the elements stripping its life
one storm at a time

alone, an empty landscape
the bitter wind blowing
chilling the pieces of my soul

me, the tree, both
alone, bowed by wind and time
reaching for the sun's warmth

the wind blows thru the branches
hollow sounds in my mind
whistling through pieces of my soul
Alyx"

"We do not mourn for the absent, why then for the dead, who are effectually no other?
In some respects I have lost what I had; and in others, I retain still what I have lost. It is an ill construction of Providence, to reflect only upon my friend s being taken away, without any regard to the benefit of his being once given me. (Seneca)"

My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I miss you my Heart, my Soul...love does last forever"
