A poem I wrote for my father after he died of cancer. It is from my Chap Book, "The Red Man In Me"

Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
I will be running in fields without fences
I will be drinking water that is not polluted

The strength that I lost here will be found
The flesh and bone lost will return in spirit
I will be young and strong again

Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
I will be visiting our ancestors
Knowledge lost will be found anew

I will truly learn the ways of the old ones
I will learn the language of our fathers
I will help to prepare a hearth for you

Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
I will be with our brothers, the winged
Our brothers, the four legged and in the sea

The Great Spirit will guide my steps
My path will be true , I wait for you there
Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone

Remember me in laughter
Remember me in the song of the flute
Remember me in the beat of the drum

Dance for me with all your heart
Fore I will be dancing with you
Look in your heart and I will be there

Do not cry for this Warrior I am still here
In your dreams, your heart and memory
I will see you again

Until then.
Until then

The rhythm in this poem speaks as clearly as do the words.
The desire to comfort and be comforted is as universal as the certainty of physical death. We long to hear our loved ones after they depart this life and your poem does that.

What a great outlook you have on life and the afterlife. Sounds as if you are truly a man of God. Take care and stay well.

What a beautiful tribute to your father. Yes the Great Spirit will embrace him and he is learning all that we seek now here on Earth. Rise to Sister Moon and Father Sky, Mother Earth and Brother Wind, for they embrace his spirit and transcended his journey with loving energy.

Much peace, love, and light,
Amber "V" Moonstone

This made me cry. I thought of my father. I wished his words were as true as your father's. These words are beautiful. They are the sky, the rain, the morning dew. They are you.
