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 rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift 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.

Never forgotten, my friend. You are missed.
Thank you for helping me restore my conversation with God.
