“I Am Not There”
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush of birds in circling flight.
I am the star shine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room, I am the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I did not die.
