Please don’t cry because I have gone home. Everyone will be there, I won’t be alone. All of those, who have before us gone, they knew I was coming, the timing not wrong. I know you will miss me physically away. But I will never leave you. I will always stay. I’ll whisper your name through the wind and air. I’ll gently caress you as I blow in your hair. My arms will cradle you when you are asleep. I will comfort you silently when you weep. Please remember me as often as you want, for I will be there as I silently stalk. Our souls are connected through this life and others. When we were brothers, mothers, or daughters. I’ve been here before and maybe again, but for now I’ve gone home where nothing ever ends. -Raven Thomas
