Please Don't Cry

Please don't cry
I'm not really gone
When you look out the window
I'll be standing on the lawn

Please don't cry
I'll see you again
Don't be sad
Keep up your chin

Please don't cry
I'm not really dead
When you cry yourself to sleep
I'll be by your bed

Please don't cry
Just because we had to part
As long as you remember me
I'll live in your heart

Please don't cry
I'm not gone forever
I'll be a cool and gentle breeze
In hot summer weather

Please don't cry
Don't run and hide
When you need a shoulder to lean on
I'll be by your side

Please don't cry
When you're sad and weak
I'll be there
To kiss you on the cheek

Please don't cry
This is just a goodbye
So please, oh please
Baby, do not cry

I lost my son in Oct. 2012 he was murder and thrown in a field like trash. I know he would not want me to be sad or cry but it hurts so bad.

My Grandad died on my birthday and it hurts so much and when I was reading this poem it made me cry because his death still has an effect on me.

Awww I love this story. It means a lot. I can relate in so many ways because I just lost two of my brothers to a car accident
