Death

"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 morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight."

"I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die."
 – Mary Elizabeth Frye
1932

And certain is birth for the dead;
Therefore over the inevitable
Thou shouldst not grieve."

… but not too soon."
 – unknown
