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 softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the grateful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.
The poem my grandma had on her wall before she passed...

I truly miss her.

Sorry if I ruined you day...

-EDIT-

My poor ol Aunt passed away... On summer break...

Sometimes I wish it would happen to me...

So I don't have to live with the pain...


...Sorry again...

yeah I know.He was only fifty-one when he died and worst of all is how and where he died.He died of a heart attack in his classroom in front of his best friend and there was a doctor just down the hall.

Superb poem :sad:
And she is right, she's not dead, she is still alive in your heart and your mind ;)
