    Last lament (do not mourn)

    Do not grieve
    Or mourn my passing
    Banish your sadness
    Remember me and smile
    Do not think of me as gone
    Or out of reach
    For I will be with you always
    Though I cast no shadow
    And you will hear no footfall
    I will be there nonetheless

    In springtime
    When wildflowers
    Dance in the meadow
    I will be there,
    In summer Ill be
    The August breeze
    That stirs a field of ripened corn,
    In autumn
    I will swirl the leaves
    Of the seasons golden carpet
    And when the winter sun shines
    I will sparkle
    And glint on the snow

    So do not grieve
    Or mourn my passing
    Banish your sadness
    Remember me and smile
    For I will be there,
    In the dawn,
    Rising with the sun,
    And you will see me again
    When the sun sets
    At the days end,
    Because I am in your hearts
    Always

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
