Don't Cry For Me Today

Don't cry for me today,
I wouldn't want it this way.
Be strong and smile,
for you will see me in a while.
I know you miss me,
but now in Heaven I will be.
Do not keep your sad face,
I am in a much better place.
Do not let your tears fall,
for I cannot wipe them all.
Yes, my life wasn't long.
But I'm begging you to be strong.
Live every moment as if it were your last,
I won't forget any memories that have passed.
Cherish life and love as I watch you from above.
As I remember all of the good things,
I come to see I have gotten my wings.
It is time to go and fly,
as your guardian angel I will try.
Don't cry for me today,
I'm on my way.
Soaring through the sky,
I watch all of you telling me goodbye.

Love you Lauren.

I lost a very dear friend and companion to cancer almost 9 months ago. Then 6 months later I lost my Uncle & Aunt on the same day and I just can't seem to think of anything else but my loved ones on a daily basis. I still cry every day for the 3 of them and can't seem to think of anything else. I found your poem and it made me cry but it also made me feel somewhat at peace too. I have saved it and will read it often. Thank you.

I have never lost anyone close to me, but when my best friend asked me to sing at her grandmothers funeral, I said yes.
She asked me to turn your poem into a song, and I did, I have my band play and I sang it, after the service my friend told me she knows her grandmother will be at peace after hearing such a lovely song.
To this day I am lucky enough to have everyone I know and love alive, but whenever I read this poem or am asked to sing it, I think of how at any moment I could lose those I love dearly, Thank you for your poem truly says it all.

My son took his own life on December 16, 2012. He was only 16 yrs old. Not only did he leave us right before Christmas, but his birthday is December 28th. The beautiful way this poem is written, gives me the hope that he found the peace in death that he could not achieve in life and whatever torment he suffered that he could not bring to those who loved him, was finally lifted from him and we will one day have an answer.

We have a very close friend who is on her death bed due to alcohol. They took her off life support today as they have tried everything to make her better. As I sit her waiting for the sad news, I found your poem...beautiful it is. I shared this with my mother who sits next to her friend holding her hand and talking to her, and hope she has shared with the family. Heaven will receive yet another angel, and as tragic as it is, I know there will be no more suffering. Thanks for sharing your poem.

My son lost both of his best friends On May 22, 2012. This poem has helped bring a little comfort to him and me. Only two hours before the accident I was helping the boys make their schedule for their Sr. year of high school. They were talking of the future plans. Kyle was so excited that he was planning to get his pilot license. He wanted to fly more than anything. Now I know they are soaring through the sky and watching over all of their friends. Miss you Kade and Kyle. Forever our angels

I lost a dear family friend, her name was Chris, I just got back from her viewing and service about 30 minutes ago, and well she loved my cousin dearly and I loved her as family, she died from a drug over dose, and I cried so much today that my head hurts, but when I read this it made me feel almost glad. Thanks for the poem, it can be supporting and positive in some case, especially mine...

My little brother passed away Jan 10th, 2012 and one of his friends posted your poem on his Facebook. We read it to mom in Spanish it made her feel some what in peace. My brother was the youngest of eight siblings and loved by so many people. He was loving and caring for everyone that came into his life, although he was lost and sad in this world, a side that not many people knew about. My brother was only 30 years of age. Reading your poem just reassures me he's in a better place. Thank you and God Bless
