She didn't leave you. Let me share my favourite poem with you if I may:

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sun 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 stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.

Valeria Cenerelli

Il Cuore chiede il Piacere - dapprima -
E poi - l’Esenzione dalla Pena -
E poi - quei piccoli Lenimenti
Che attenuano la sofferenza -
E poi - addormentarsi -
E poi - se questa fosse
La volontà del suo Inquisitore -
Il privilegio di morire
E. Dickinson

This was the song that we played at my mum's funeral. She would play it all the time at home when we were little, and as soon as it got to 00:40, she would always mess it up and exclaim with a whispered "shit". So at the funeral, when that part was played, we all exclaimed "shit" with my brothers and sisters. It was a brief moment when we all had a smile on our face.
Love you mumma xxx

llwyd anwyl

fake there is no reason to mess up at 40s ? it's an exact repeat of the four bars previous


Good memory


That’s beautiful. May she Rest In Peace.
