Thank You...

Friday, July 17, 2009

Found out yesterday that my aunt died...my dad's eldest sister was the one who actually took care all of her younger siblings when their mom left! Despite their own mother leaving them, she took care of her younger brothers and sisters...my dad, the youngest boy in the family. Aat least...now i know this made him the man that he is today!

My dad found out and immediately went to Klang right away with my mom...and my poor sister is home alone with baby sis! I felt so guilty for not being able to go home at that moment!

After talking to mom and dad today, they said i didn't have to go home...all i had to do was pray for my aunt, that she attains peace and is blessed by God. Her early burial is because that she is a Muslim convert, hence...the immediate burial.

I would like to leave this post with another poem for comfort of those that were left behind...it's quite popular in funerals, as it is simply beautiful! It is by Mary Elizabeth Frye...and the first time i heard this poem...i had tears in my eyes! Here goes:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

May God bless you...

Thank u...i wasn't close to her, but i respect her a lot, as she raised her siblings selflessly...my dad included!
