Native American Prayer
I give you this, one though to keep.
I am with you still, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on the 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 think of me as gone-- I am with you still
In each new dawn.
The family of Sandra Alsup wish to extend immense and sincere thanks, appreciation, and utmost deepest gratitude for the numerous expressions of sympathy, condolences, and acts of kindness during this time of grief and sorrow."
