    Earl L. Chase



    Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
    I will be running in fields without fences
    I will be drinking water that is not polluted
    The strength that I lost here will be found
    The flesh and bone lost will return in spirit I will be young and strong again
    Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
    I will be visiting our ancestors Knowledge lost will be found anew
    I will truly learn the ways of the old ones
    I will learn the language of our fathers
    I will help to prepare a hearth for you
    Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
    I will be with our brothers,
    the winged Our brothers,
    the four legged and in the sea The Great Spirit will guide my steps
    My path will be true,
    I wait for you there
    Do not cry for this warrior when I am gone
    Remember me in laughter
    Remember me in the song of the flute
    Remember me in the beat of the drum
    Dance for me with all your heart
    Fore I will be dancing with you
    Look in your heart and I will be there
    Do not cry for this Warrior I am still here
    In your dreams, your heart and memory
    I will see you again
    Until then.
