a lovely poem but a gentle reminder

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 sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's 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.

Me too Samj, and happy if the comfort from the poem has helped comatosephoenix, hopefully by being a member of this place, you'll find your wings and fly soon, too. Many peace & blessings to you both :)
