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?s rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush
Of quiet birds in circled 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.
