I Am Not There ...
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
I am the gentle
autumn rain ...
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift
up-flinging of quiet birds in circling flight ...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there ...
I did not die ...
A private burial will be held by the family at Keystone Cemetery, Dobbins, CA.
