Do the Dead Still Care?

Do the Dead ForgiveDo you think the dead still care?
I think they’re still here, surrounding….
That they find it easier to forgive
Than when they were breathing.
They have larger hearts now,
Eyes that are clear, unblinking—
Their spirits are wiser,
Know that each day is sacred gift,
No longer wonder so much as they exist
In the midst of what for us is still mystery.
I don’t think they’re angry at all,
Have found it easy to forgive.
Now they watch over the night,
Sigh with wind in the morning light,
Patiently waiting with love.
