“The Whispering Wind
It’s normal that you shed a tear
When first I took my leave
But know that I am happy here
No need for you to grieve
The beauty that’s surrounding me
Would take your breath away
There’s colors that I can’t describe
The air’s a sweet bouquet
There’s nothing to forgive
Don’t lay your heart upon the past
Just let our memories live
And though your earthly eyes can’t see
Believe that I am there
Whenever you feel the whispering wind
Flow gently through your hair
I’m there when fireflies light the dark
When candles mark a year
I’m there when you are far from home
And when you need an ear
I’m always just a thought away
Our souls could never part
Connected for eternity
Forever in your heart”
