    Harold D. Smith

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glint on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft starlight at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die!
      ~ Mary Frye (1932)
