I am the radiant smile from a child you made laugh today
I am the tears from the old woman you read a letter to on your way
I am the song of the birds who greet your from their trees
I am the softness of the air on a hot summer night breeze

I am the scent of the flowers you placed tenderly at the alter
I am the hand that you held gently when you saw another falter
I am the painting in the studio of the artist you donít know
I am the seeds you plant in the ground in hopes that they will grow

I am through living this life in the form you knew me before
So when you spend time at my resting place cry for me no more
I am not lying in the ground I have finally learned to fly
I just began to live again the day I had to die.

Just when I think I hve been forgotten...thanks for the comments and the hope that even though my words have been sparse of late, they still connect to someone, somewhere.
