I Am Anna


My life did not end in a tragic accident. I was freed from the captivity of a human body.

We know that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it just changes from one form to another.

I did not die- I am still here.

When you walk in the rain- I am here.
When you feel a gentle breeze- I am here.
When you feel the warmth of the sun- I am here.
When you hear beautiful music- I am here.
When there is laughter- I am here.

When you listen to the sounds of a babbling brook, or the chirping of birds or the hum of insects;
When you gaze at a colorful sunset or stare at the heavens on a clear night- I am here.

While I remain in your heart and your memory- I am here.

I am beauty.

I am love.

I am Anna.



(In memory of my friend Anna Bonnet)

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
