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 beautiful birds in circling flight,

I am the starshine of the night. I am the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room.

I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there. I do not die.
