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 sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
My best friend whom I feel was my soul mate passed away 19 days ago from cancer. He taught me what true love was. We shared so many dreams , laughs and tears. We could talk for hours and it seamed like minutes. He was my everything.
We spent many nights in the hospital together holding hands as we slept. In the end I hardly left his side.His last words to me were Goodnight I love you. I feel blessed in so many ways to have been loved by such a awesome man.
He was transported home by ambulance to die by his wishes. When he arrived home... I did some house work got all his medicine in order. I was very relieved he was home. I laid down to take a nap with him.I put my hand over his heart to tell him that I loved him, he was home and I was going to take a nap with him.
I woke up to find that he had passed away. Panic and loneliness hit me, my true love was gone. I felt honored and blessed to have been loved so much in so many ways and to have him be by my side as he took his last breath.
The day after he passed my angel globe started chiming. He was communicating with me. I know he is no longer suffering and I know he is in a better place.
We made plans in our next life to be together.
I know I will always love him and when my time is done here. I will join him again.
I love you because of all the things you are and because of all that I am when I am with you...
I love you because you have shown me in a hundred beautiful ways what love means...
Wayne, I will always love you!
