Rest in Peace dear warrior for Michael. You work with us now from the spiritual world.
Verse for our beloved dead
By Rudolf Steiner
May my heart-love reach to soul-love.
May my love’s warmth shine to spirit-light.
Thus, I draw near to you.
Thinking spiritual thoughts WITH you,
Feeling cosmic love IN you,
Willing in spirit THROUGH you –
Weaving with you
One in experience.
