In Loving Memory of Jimmy… A Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye

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 diamonds that glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning 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.
