Cemeteries ~ Resources

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I an the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there
I did not die.
