Do not stand by my grave and weep, I am not there,
I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am a diamond glint of 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 starts shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
