REMEMBER

I don't remember that it rained
On the day his body died
But I'm told the heavens opened up
When the angels began to cry.

I don't remember sleeping
On the eve I heard the news
But I must have somehow closed my eyes
When a dream of him came through.

I don't remember breathing
On the night I found him gone
But I know I felt a gasp of air
When I stood there all alone.

I don't remember crying
On the way to his goodbye
But I touched my face and it was wet
When I reached to wipe my eye.

I don't remember flowers
On the chapel walls that day
But their fragrance lingered in my mind
When I began to walk away.

I don't remember music
On the silence of that place
But I heard the whisper of his soul
When it left this time and space.

I won't remember flying
On beyond to where he roams
But I'll know for sure we'll never part
When I remember ..... I'm back home.

THE WINGS THAT FLY US HOME



There are many ways of being in this circle we call life




A wise man seeks an answer, burns his candle through the night




Is a jewel just a pebble that found a way to shine




Is a heroís blood more righteous than a hoboís sip of wine




Did I speak to you one morning on some distant world away




Did you save me from an arrow, did you lay me in a grave




Were we brothers on a journey, did you teach me how to run




Were we broken by the waters, did I lie you in the sun




I dreamed you were a prophet in a meadow




I dreamed I was a mountain in the wind




I dreamed you knelt and touched me with a flower




I awoke with this flower in my hand




I know that love is seeing all the infinite in one




In the brotherhood of creatures; who the father, who the son




The vision of your goodness will sustain me through the cold




Take my hand now to remember when you find yourself alone




And the spirit fills the darkness of the Heavens




It fills the endless yearning of the soul




It lives within a star too far to dream of




It lives within each part and is the whole




Itís the fire and the wings that fly us home




Fly us home,




fly us home

~ Words by Joe Henry, music by John Denver

I think of Luke in April on his Heaven day. I think of the phrase "April showers bring May flowers" I think of the "showers" of the many "tears" that are being shed by Luke's family and friends.......remembering him on his Heaven date. Although I never met Luke in person, I KNOW him. Because of all the wonderful stories his parents share and because of all the great signs he sends......I can say "I KNOW LUKE". He is so special to me. I also truly think he is "best Heaven friends" with my son, Danny. The two of them put their heads together and send some incredible signs. So....Luke, you are being remembered, with candles and thoughts. You are never far from my heart. I know you will be sending your family some of your special signs. YOU ARE LOVED.
