.... from the Heart (Judy Burnette)
I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face;
the warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.
I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky;
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.
I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain;
it seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.
I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete;
you may have died... but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.
As long as the sun shines...
the wind blows...
the rain falls...
You will live on inside of me forever,
for that is all my heart knows.
.... du fond du cœur (Judy Burnette)
J'ai entendu ta voix dans le vent aujourd'hui
et je me suis retourné pour voir ton visage;
la chaleur du vent me caressait
alors que je me tenais silencieusement en place.
J'ai senti ton contact au soleil aujourd'hui
comme sa chaleur remplissait le ciel;
J'ai fermé les yeux pour ton étreinte
et mon esprit a grimpé en flèche.
J'ai vu tes yeux dans la vitre
alors que je regardais la pluie tomber;
il semblait que chaque goutte de pluie tombait
il disait doucement ton nom.
Je t'ai serré dans mon cœur aujourd'hui
cela me faisait me sentir complet;
vous êtes peut-être mort ... mais vous n'êtes pas parti
tu feras toujours partie de moi.
Tant que le soleil brille ...
le vent souffle...
la pluie tombe...
Tu vivras toujours en moi,
car c'est tout ce que mon cœur sait.

The grief of loss is equal on both sides. A most fitting and moving image and prose, my friend.

The Holleman brothers were buried during 1862, by their father, who owned the property where I lived as a child, and then again later as a care taker for aging parents until they died...
My last act as owner of the property was to arrange for their graves to be moved to the Confederate section of our primary cemetery, which has been documented by my previous posts.
