Tom’s Memory:

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 sunlight on ripened grain

I am the gentle autumn’s rain

When you awaken in the mornings hush

I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight

I am the soft starts than shine at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry

I am not there, I did not die
