In loving memory of Robert J. Williams, Technical Sergeant with the U.S. Air Force
Dedicated by Christopher Seidel, Stephanie Seidel, and Victoria Myshka
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.

— Victoria Myshka
