John Daniel Windhausen
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 glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened 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 starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there.
I did not die.
