Grieve ...but Not for Me.......
I did not leave .....I am all around you
I did not die ...I am simply vaporous
as is the rain around you
and in the air you breath
Yes in fact I am within you even
Did you think that because of death
I could be no more?
That every ounce of love every moment
of life just passes away .....gone
What once was...... is all powerful
My smile and laugh
the tears and anger too
My love softened flesh
my crooked smile
Not in the eternity
it took to pass
Nor in the swiftest moment of my demise
I am right here ........
And I will always be .......
Grieve if you will
but not for me
