Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Don’t stand at my grave and weep,
I’m not there, I don’t sleep.
I’m in a thousand winds that blow,
I’m the softly falling snow.
I’m the mild showers of rain,
I’m the fields of ripening grain.
I’m within the morning hush,
I’m within the swish rush
Of lovely birds in circling flight,
I’m the star shine of the night time.
I’m within the flowers that bloom,
I’m in a quiet room.
I’m within the birds that sing,
I’m in every beautiful factor.
Don’t stand at my grave and cry,
I’m not there. I’ve not left
