Unhappy RIP Sparky

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

I am a 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 weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

RIP Sparky, my little buddy, my little boy. My unisex fish, my flarer, my biter, my 'ugly' ... life will be boring.

Crossed over the rainbow bridge 4/2/2012

Cowards die many times before their deaths
The valiant never taste of death but once.


It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

I'm sorry ... but that's a beautiful poem. I used it when my first cat died.
He was a beauty :)
