Another Wee Angel in Cromwell Today - RIP Carys

Another wee child dead today, I cant believe that the last time I posted on this blog was when Riley (aged 2) died. Now Carys, (who is about the same age as Montana-Rose, one day before her 4th birthday), with Cerebal Palsy, and such a sweetie. I was always drawn to her smiley face. I made this for them, with the poem by an unknown author.

I am not there

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 snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight 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 star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
