Don't You Dare Cry - for Krys

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 9 July 2014 in People & Portrait.

I dedicate the words below to a truly valiant young woman. A woman who said goodbye Tuesday night.....well before her time; A woman who fought bravely the battle that cancer wages...She won that battle...for eight years!....But last night, she said goodbye. This is Dedicated to Krys and her husband Andy, and their sons, Max, Alex, and Ben.

Last night I said Goodbye
Didn't want to, but.....

The Sunset was Golden
Just Like your Love
Your love held me tight and laughed with me
and now weeps for me....

But Don't Cry....
Don't you Dare cry,
I am in the sun, and the snow,
I'm in the stars in the sky,
I am in the air all around;

You made me smile, and you still do
You made me laugh...and made me yell sometimes, too;
But Don't you dare cry;

I love those Boys, I love you!
Always have, always will;
You were...and are...my strength and my prince;

Ok you can cry, but just for a minute;
Then....after that....just know that we are together, you and I
In Love and in life...
In heaven and in heart...
I am here;

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
