Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Mary Frye (1932)


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 in 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 in the starshine 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 do not die.


Lord, remind the present generation ~ remind every generation ~ to honor those who faced the fires for us. Amen.
