Rest in Peace - Haley Joel Osment
I appreciate that this community was erected so swiftly. I was alarmed to know that we have lost such an acclaimed, blond, young actor.
I've noticed some people on LJ appearing to dispute or not accept what's happened to HaJo, & after being reminded of a Native American saying, I know now just what these people are trying to tell us. So, without further ado, the saying:
Don't stand by my grave
Don't stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond's glint in the snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
In the soft blush of the morning light
I am the swift bird in flight.
Don't stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.
