    Joseph Quinton

    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.
