Do Not Stand Beside My Grave and Weep

Do not stand beside my grave and weep
for I am not there 
for I did not die

I am the air that surrounds you 
and the ground beneath you 

I am the tear upon your cheek 
and the sound of your weep 

I am the north and south 
and the change of seasons 
Oh how god knows I have left you with out reason 

Do not stand beside my grave and cry 
for I am not there 
For I  Did not die 


This poem uses the line " Do not stand beside my grave and weep". It was inspiration from a 
famous poem by Mary Frye Titled "Don't stand beside my grave and weep for I am not dead, I do not sleep"
