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 glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled 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.

    A good poem with so much inspiration to the mind those who fear the ultimate end of life that is the so called death and its after effect

    That's a very touching poem.. one returns to the elements of life.. the mad elements of life.. in death..

    I'm not sure whether this is allowed, but I needed to share this. This poem was turned into a song (by whom I'm not sure) , and there's a video of Conor O'Brien singing it, and he has the voice of an angel, so if it's okay I wanted to share the link:

    Yes, we will all be in the passing winds that blow
    In the dust beneath the fallen snow
    In the warmth of the summer sun
    All this when our life is really done
    And there be no real death for any one..............

    To all ye poets who readeth this, I welcome thee to my poet page too for ye to comment.......
