Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep (Mary Elizabeth Frye)

Do not stand at my grave, and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am the thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints in snow
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
As you awake with morning’s hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the day transcending night.
Do not stand at my grave, and cry
I am not there, I did not die.
