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 sunset on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,

I am the sweet uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight,

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry

I am not there, I did not die.
