I know that no matter what

You will always be with me.

When life separates us

I’ll know it is only your soul

Saying goodbye to your body

But your spirit will be with me always.

When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch

I will know it is you singing to me.

When a butterfly brushes gently by me so carefreely

I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain.

When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention

I will know it is you reminding me

To appreciate the simple things in life.

When the sun shining through my window awakens me

I will feel the warmth of your love.

When I hear the rain pitter-patter against my window sill

I will hear your words of wisdom

And will remember what you taught me so well

That without rain trees cannot grow

Without rain, flowers cannot bloom

Without life’s challenges, I cannot grow strong.

When I look out to the sea

I will think of your endless love for your family.

When I think of mountains, their majesty, and magnificence

I will think of your courage for your country.

No matter where I am

Your spirit will be beside me

For I know that no matter what

You will always be with me.
