“Do not stand at my grave and weep…
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, up-flinging rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry…
I am not there. I did not die.”
