60 Poems collection Do Not Stand at My Grave I Am Always With You Do not stand at my grave and weep, When I am gone, release me, let me go. I am not there; I do not sleep. I have so many things to see and do, I am a thousand winds that blow, You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears, I am the diamond glints on snow, But be thankful we had so many good years. I am the sun on ripened grain, I gave you my love, and you can only guess I am the gentle autumn rain. How much you’ve given me in happiness. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I thank you for the love that you have shown, I am the swift uplifting rush but now it is time I traveled on alone. Of quiet birds in circling flight. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must I am the soft star-shine at night. Then let your grief be comforted by trust Do not stand at my grave and cry, that it is only for a while that we must part, I am not there; I did not die. So treasure the memories within your heart. I won’t be far away for life goes on. Author Mary Frye And if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I will be near And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear All my love around you soft and clear And then, when you come this way along, I’ll greet you with a smile and a “Welcome Home”. Author Unknown Goodbye The church is full of people who have come to say goodbye. But no one wants to see you go And we’re all left asking why? In our pain and tears we share a heartache that cannot heal But in our minds we keep our memories that none can ever steal. We all can feel your hand in ours And see your loving face You haven’t gone, I feel you here A love I can’t replace. You meant so much to each of us In our hearts you’ll always be I hope you knew how precious you were To them, to us, to me. Author Unknown
