I recently lost my husband and since his passing, I haven't been able to concentrate on anything.  I´ll be back on-line later...

Jaska, my Love
I miss you so much my love
Deep Sorrow

Hopi Indian prayer

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep

I am the thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die.
