In loving memory of Robert J. Williams, Technical Sergeant with the U.S. Air Force

I give you this one thought 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 ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circle 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.

— Dedicated by Christopher Seidel, Stephanie Seidel, and Victoria Myshka
