My mother will be going into hospice care soon. I was greatly touched by this poem as it will help me to always know that while she is physically not with me her spirit will be everywhere. This poet has captured the essence of the loss of loved ones in a very reassuring way.

While Waiting For Thee

Don't weep at my grave
For I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly
To dance on the air.
If I'm missed, find a flower,
I'll be there too,
Sniffing it's fragrance
Right next to you.

Don't be sad
When you remember me,
For I'm singing in the sunshine,
Wild and free,
Flirting with the lighting,
Playing tag with the wind,
Chasing the thunder
Time and again,
Soaring with the eagle,
Swimming in the sea,
Enjoying all of nature
While I'm waiting for thee.
