Don't Cry

Do not stand at my grave and cry.

Do not mourn my passing.

There is no eternal goodbye,

For life is everlasting.

At any time that you desire,

If longing stares you in the face,

My spirit you may visit

And I will hold you in my embrace.

Whenever you feel the wind brushing softly by.

Smile, for I am there. I'm kissing you. Don't cry.

When you feel the sun, warming you from inside.

You are in my presence and I am holding you. Don't cry.

When ocean water swirls around you, know that it is I.

My presence is all around you. I flow. I shine. I fly.

When your loneliness overcomes you and tears pour from your eyes.

Remember that I am here. I am with you. I did not die.
