In Memoriam

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain
I am the gently falling autumn rain
When you wake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplighting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep

Emidio Rodrigues 1921-2003

My uncle passed away October 22, 2003 after a brief illness.

Adeus, ó casas velhinhas, das vielas estreitinhas onde o fado já mourou.
Adeus, meu bairro de encantos, dos teus mais velhos recantos, só a saudade ficou.

Adeus, mouraria, adeus, tradição
Já veijo a cidade cantar com saudade a tua canção.
As casas velhinhas, feitas de perdraria
Vão pelo caminho dizendo baichinho, adeus, mouraria.

Sempre recordarei os boms momentos passados na pequena aldeia que o tempo esqueceu.

Com saudades da cachopa amiga.
