I SO MISS YOU, CELIA CRUZ. I WENT TO ONE OF YOUR CONCERTS IN LOS ANGELES AND EVERYONE DANCED THERE. YOUR PERFORMANCES WERE WONDERFUL TO WATCH, AND YOUR MUSIC WAS BETTER THAN WONDERFUL. YOU MADE EVERYONE DANCE WITH YOUR TUNES AND YOUR VOICE. TOO BAD YOU HAD TO LEAVE OUR WORLD, BUT NOW YOU ARE SINGING FOR THE LORD ALMIGHTY AND I BET YOUR MAKING GOD DANCE TOO. I LOVED ALL OF YOUR DRESSES YOU HAD ON WHEN YOU WERE ON STAGE. DIOS TE BENDIGA, CELIA CRUZ. YOU WERE A BLESSING TO US ALL. SORRY YOU HAD TO SUFFER SUCH A HORRIBLE SICKNESS. BUT NOW GOD HAS YOU BY HIS SIDE. SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER IN HEAVEN.

For Celia...the Cuban-born singer who went from singing in Havana nightclubs to become the "Queen of Salsa.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.
