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 in the 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
