    Hello! Despite numerous online searches, I can't find the author of a particular poem, my partner wants to include it as a reading at their funeral (when such a time eventually transpires) . I managed to find the poem in its' entirety and what I desperately need to know is the title and author. Here it is and thank you in advance:

    " I am in the wind that blows on a bitter cold day.
    I am the sunshine's one and only ray.
    I am in the laughter of every child playing.
    I am in the words that people are saying.
    I am the river roaring so fast.
    I am the line that has just been cast.
    I am the mountain so tall and steep.
    I am the animal that walks and creeps.
    I am in the baby's newborn cry.
    I am the brightest star in the sky.
    I am the song that has just been sung.
    I am gone but my life has just begun.
    I am in the tears of all those who weep.
    I am happy, and that promise I will keep.
    Do not cry for me for I am home,
    Forever in heaven I shall roam.
    Do not cry for me for I am here,
    I'll be with you always, so have no fear."

    Hi I am looking for what I believe is a 13th century poem. Part of it is something like:

    I have been searching for you all of my life
    You have always been there
    You come to toward me

    Very vague im afraid. I heard it put to music as a Kirtan chant if any one can help, one of many verses I believe

    I looking for the title and or author for a poem I found on a tombstone, the lines are as follows:
    But why it was that the whole world wasted
    This you will know when they count the tears
    After the dust of the grave is tasted
    After this noise of years

    I remember this poem as a child. It is from a very large book of classic poems. The poem its about sleep. It may be 6 to 10 lines long. The line that I can't get out of my head is " the wicked take 11" or something to that effect. It also references other amounts of sleep and their effect or merit. Help me please....

    I need help finding a poem! I heard it at an open mic night tonight and didn't think to take down the poets name. I did, however, write down a line from the poem. " I wonder where you go when I'm missing you the most." I really wanted to revisit this poem so If anyone could help me out that would be fantastic! !

    I've been searching for a certain verse that been in my head for decades but can't find. I could not have dreamt it up. It starts like this: When you've mastered all the methods, penetrated all the ways by which those who were successful, justified their claim to praise...

    2nd request, please someone help: I'm looking for a very old poem, believe the name was " Needless Worry" basically about someone worrying about something, then in the end they find that what they were worrying about didn't happen to begin with, so they wasted all that time worrying about nothing.

      Look at the poem " Borrowing - From the French" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, may be the one you want.
