Subject:  Mickey's Prayer...
Message:  I wanted to post this on Monday, but I'm afraid I won't be home all weekend, and I leave for Wisconsin Monday morning. As all of you know, Monday will mark a year since my dad passed away, and a close friend of mine here in Utah wrote this poem for me, to ease the pain a bit. It also explains where I stand when I made the comment about not having to visit his grave site to remember him... Listen to his songs, and he'll live.


Mickey's Prayer

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am the thunder of a Texas storm.
I am the lightning in silver form.
I am the spring's trickling creek.
I am the breeze across your cheek.
I am the fire burning bright.
I am the southern starlight.
I am the season's coming tide.
I am the song you hear deep inside.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.

I know he is watching over us today, and I think he'll probably be doing something active to celebrate on Monday. *grin* We're all in this together.
