Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep

Irish Cemetery

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 on snow…
I am the sunlight on ripened grain…
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle 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…
