I'm Not Here

Don't stand by my grave and weep

For I'm not there, I do not sleep

I am a thousand winds that blow

I am the diamonds glint on snow

I am the sunlight on ripened grain

I am the gentle autumn's rain

When you awaken in morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circle 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.
