Look and See

Sent to my dear friend Rhonda who just lost her Uncle!  And anyone else who needs it!  I thought it was moving and wanted to share it with anyone who reads my journal.

- Merry

hen somebody dies, a cloud turns into
   an angel, and flies up to tell God
   to put another flower on a pillow.
   A bird gives the message back to
   the world, and sings a silent prayer
   that makes the rain cry. People dis-
   appear, but they never really go away.
   The spirits up there put the sun to
   bed, wake up grass, and spin the
   earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
   can see them dancing in a cloud during
   the day-time, when they're supposed
   to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
   bows and also the sunsets and make
   waves splash and tug at the tide.
   They toss shooting stars and listen to
   wishes. And when they sing wind-
   songs, they whisper to us, don't
   miss me too much. The view is nice
   and I'm doing just fine.
