I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
I stood by you on the bed as you cried many tears,
" It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I stayed with you all night trying to reach you
You could not see me yet I could be with you
I wanted to reassure you- to let you know I was OK
yet you were so very sad- there was really no way
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
you were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you are you worked today
I knew you felt so bad
I wanted to kiss your hand - they way I always had
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on your foot, I hopped and said "it's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was right there.
It's possible for me to be near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then syou smiled smiled, Then I think then you knew
... in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "goodnight, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll sit, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, be still and then we can be
for now, know that I am with you every moment of every night and day
I promise you- I will never go away
Love, from your bunny
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’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
