Walked on 11 years ago..........

 

AN INDIAN PRAYER

I GIVE YOU THIS ONE THOUGHT TO KEEP,

I AM WITH YOU STILL; I DO NOT SLEEP.

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP,

 I AM NOT THERE, I DO NOT SLEEP,

 FOR NOW, I AM A THOUSAND WINDS THAT BLOW.

 I AM THE DIAMOND GLINT ON THE NEW-FALLEN SNOW.

 I AM THE SUNLIGHT ON RIPENED GRAIN.

 I AM THE GENTLE, SOFT AUTUMN RAIN.

 WHEN YOU AWAKEN IN THE MORNING, HUSH.

 I AM THE SWIFT UPLIFTING RUSH,

  OF QUIET BIRDS IN CIRCLING FLIGHT. 

 I AM THE SOFT STARS THAT TWINKLE AT NIGHT.

 DO NOT THINK OF ME AS GONE,

  FOR I AM WITH YOU STILL, IN EACH NEW DAWN.

  My DAD,  Douglas Eugene Parisian
