In Memory of You 
    I find an old photograph  
    and see your smile.  
    As I feel your presence anew,  
    I am filled with warmth  
    and my heart remembers love.  

    I read an old card  
    sent many years ago  
    during a time of turmoil and confusion.  
    The soothing words written then  
    still caress my spirit  
    and bring me peace.  

    I remember who you used to be  
    the laughter we shared  
    and wonder what you have become.  
    Where are you now,  
    Where did you go,  
    When the body is left behind  
    and the spirit is released to fly?  

    Perhaps you are the morning bird  
    singing joyfully at sunrise,  
    or the butterfly that dances  
    so carelessly on the breeze  
    or the rainbow of colors  
    that brightens a stormy sky  
    or the fingers of afternoon mist  
    delicately reaching over the mountains  
    or the final few rays of the setting sun  
    lighting up the skies  
    edging the clouds with a magical glow.  

    I miss your being  
    but I feel your presence,  
    In whatever form you choose to take,  
    however you now choose to be.  

    Your spirit has become for me  
    a guardian angel on high  
    guiding, advising, and watching over me.  

    I remember you.  
    You are with me  
    and I am not afraid.

In Memory of you is dedicated as a way to celebrate the life of Dr. Leo Buscaglia, honor his work and commit to his mission of spreading love.  
It is my hope that we may all feel his presence and his love as those who were touched by his message gather with one common purpose during the World-wide sunset tribute. Even more important than this is that we remember his message of love and compassion for every day. 
To quote Dr. Buscaglia: 
Man has no choice but to love. 
For when he does not, 
he find his alternative lie in loneliness, destruction and despair.

And his challenge to all of us: 

    To live in love is life's greatest challenge.
I encourage you to live in love.
