A light went out on earth for us, the day we said goodbye. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I’m not there, I do not sleep.

I’m a thousand winds that blow. I’m the glints on snow. When you awake in the morning hush, I’m the uplifting rush.

Like doves in a circled flight, I’m the stars at night. So do not stand at my grave and Cry! I am not there, I did not Die!
