Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

As long as you are remembered you will never die...

Ray Aquino

My first date was a blind date, Ray. He was a gentleman, as I was 16 and he, 20. We did a lot of driving around, listening and singing to the radio and making light talk. He had an old car that dumped exhaust fumes inside, and a floor that was rotted away. I'm sure he tried to make our dates as nice as possible, as he obviously had little money to spend. The thing I was very impressed about was that he would travel from downtown Chicago to the suburbs to pick me up every Saturday night for a 2 hour date. He was drafted about a year after we met, and we wrote to each other. When I was just 18 years old in 1970, 3 of my letters were returned and a letter from the army. I wished I wrote him more often and sent more packages, as he always enjoyed it so much. Thank you, Ray, for giving your life for all of us. I have always thought of you on May 16.
