A Tribute to my Hero
Glenn Pond
 May 02, 1933

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 softly fallen snow.

I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.

I am in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush.

Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft star that shines at 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 did not die!

We do not die
So please don't cry
We will meet again as promised
In the love of the white Dove!

You meant so much to me
In my heart you will always be.

Heaven only takes the best
That's why you were layed to rest.

You have now passed on
But your memories live on.

We spent lots of time together
Times that will be with me forever.

Being without you is so hard to do
But I know you'll help me get through.

You will never be forgot
Because I love you a lot.

Another Star burn out that day,
As one of the world's great men passed away.

He was a giant among men,
A man that was loved to the very end.

He was a rock that stood tall,
And he was gentle and kind,
And was loved by us all.

He taught us through his actions,
How important we all are to one another,
As a friend, or a father, or even a brother.

He was unselfish in everyway,
He showed us strength in everyday.

He was dealt a terrible fate one night,
With a disease he could never fight.

He was strong to the very end,
Though it was a battle he could not win.

He may be gone, but his memory lives on,
In the heart and souls of all those he touched.

Stars in the sky do sometimes fade,
But the pain in my heart will never go away.

I think of you often, both morning and night,
The things I feel I just can not fight.

I can never replace you, Nor would I try,
Reliving the memories still make me cry.

You were my friend through and through,
A friend that is forever true.

You were my Hero though you may not have known,
No matter where life takes me, your memory will live on.

Glenn Pond was my closest friend,
he was always there when I needed him.
I will miss you everyday my brother!

May this candle forever burn
In your memory and may those memories
Live on in our hearts and souls forever.
