Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep

(Wilbur Skeels, 1996)


Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there, I do not sleep.


I am the song that will never end.

I am the love of family and friend.

I am the child who has come to rest

In the arms of the Father who knows him best.


When you see the sunset fair,

I am the scented evening air.

I am the joy of a task well done.

I am the glow of the setting sun.


Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there, I do not sleep.


Do not stand at my grave and cry.

I am not there, I did not die!
