Your Spirit

I know that no matter what you will always be with me.
When life separates us, I’ll know it is only your soul saying goodbye to your body
but your spirit will be with me always.
When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch, I will know it is you singing to me.
When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain.
When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention, I will know it is you reminding me to appreciate the simple things in life.
When the sun shining through my window awakens me, I will feel the warmth of your love.
When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill, I will hear your words of wisdom and will remember what you taught me so well - that without rain trees cannot grow, without rain flowers cannot bloom, without life’s challenges I cannot grow strong.
When I look out to the sea I will think of your endless love for your family.
When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence, I will think of your courage for your country.
No matter where I am your spirit will be beside me, for I know that no matter what you will always be with me.
