In Memory

"Farewell" To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go. 
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love; you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown,
but it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for a while, for if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a little while that we must part,
so bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on,
so if you need me call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near,
and if you listen with your heart,
you'll hear all of my love around you, soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say,"Welcome Home."

Today my spirit swoops and soars like a kite caught on a spring breeze. No longer bound by pain and a body unable to do it's bidding, but always tethered to this earth only by the silken cord of your love.

Revonna's proudest accomplishments are without a doubt, her three children Ryan, Amy, and Jason.
