Jessie Alberta Matthews

MATTHEWS, Jessie Alberta

1914 – 2003

Do not stand by my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep

I am the thousand winds that blow

I am a diamond glint on snow

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain

When you awake in the morning hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circling flight

I am the soft starshine at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there, I did not die.
