DO NOT WEEP

DO NOT WEEP
(excerpt from SICK)

do not weep
they are not gone
they are the sunrise
as it breaks the dawn
do not weep
they are not in a grave
they are the motion
in every ocean wave
do not weep
they did not die
they are the bird' s song
and the blue of the sky
do not weep
they did not leave
they are the breeze
that blows through the trees
do not weep
they are not far
they are the glow of the moon
and the shine of a star
do not weep
do not let your heart harden
live...love...laugh
and watch them grow in your garden
do not weep
because their lives were cut short
they are still here
and Frankie will forever be his mama's little wart

death before their time
