Don't Mourn for Me

Don’t Mourn for Me

When I am gone, don’t mourn for me,
Just look around, I’m in everything you see.
I’ll be in the dew that comes during the night,
You’ll find me in each snow flake that comes with the light.

You know me, for I’ll be heaven bound,
But just look and you’ll see me all around.
You can see me in the gentle morning breeze,
Or see me in the songbird perched high in the trees.

Look on our deck; see the roses growing there,
You will find me in the aroma of the early morning air.
You can see me in the moon beam that comes from the sky,
You can see me as the birds begin to fly.

Look toward the sea, as it glistens in the sun,
You can see me in the fisherman as he starts his run.
God made all these things for us to see,
That is why I’ll be in them, because I know He made me.
