Indian Prayer

Do not stand by 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 ripe 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 starshine at night. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
