My Sweet Angel

You were here. Now, you are not.

My friend just passed away. I am broken up about it. This is my tribute to her.

I will not weep for you, for your strength drawn

since your first breath of life;

I remember you.

I will not weep for you, for your body has failed,

but your soul lives on in my heart,

And now you’re free to chase the wind,

Your beautiful hair flowing in your wake,

Sailing on a cloud

Out of a restless, careworn life

Into the brightest of days.

You are the thousand winds that blow

For it is there between the sky

And boundless clouds of blue

You are the diamond sparkles in the dark

You are the sunlight on ripened grain,

a gentle autumn rain.

Deep within the vastness

Of quiet birds in orbiting flight,

I see a glistening star

Always and forever,

I will remember you.
