dear family and friends of bob guilotti,

i was shocked to learn of bob's passing. he was the epitome of life, intensity, and great artistry. i miss him and will keep him in my music and life as an inspiration. here is a poem in his memory -


words from the hopi people of southwest native america and royal hartigan 1999

for bob guilotti, a great artist and friend

do not stand at my grave and weep, i am not there i do not sleep

i am a thousand Massachusetts winter winds that blow, i am the diamond glints on snow

i am the summer’s sun on the ripened grain, i am the gentle waltham autumn’s rain

i am harvest leaves of red and orange and gold, i am the life force of all beings, great and small, fleeting and eternal, young and old

i am new england mountain meadows of brown and tan and green, i am the inner secret shadow spirits of all things, visible and unseen

i am the dawning dew in may’s blooming mist, i am the heartbeat of your dreams kissed

i am the sounds of music, jazz drums, dance, and song, from up on high, i am the clouds in an endless sky

when you awaken in the morning’s quiet hush, i am the swift uplifting rush of birds in circled flight

i am the soft stars that shine on a moonlit night

so do not stand at my grave and cry, i am not there, i did not die

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

and as before, bob, wherever you go we are with you near or far, and wherever we walk on the paths of this long cold night of life without you, you are right here with us, inside our hearts

a mirror for each other’s souls through time and space we are one, and someday yet again we will be whole as we awaken together in the evening’s midnight sun

as we awaken together in the evening’s midnight sun

and we’ll dance with spirits deep, play music, sing the whole way through,

we’ll laugh at life’s old ills, and to each other be true, as we awaken together in the evening’s midnight sun

in the evening’s midnight sun

we are one

we are one

we are one

all one all

one all

beyond forever

with you in our hearts, bob
