Do not stand
At my grave and cry 

I’m no longer there
But in the sky

My body is restful
And my mind is a drift

The thought of a heaven 
Is all but a bliss

I’m lost in the sunlight
I’m playing in the grass

And I realize heaven 
Is earth at our last

So do not stand
At my grave and cry
I am not there
I did not die…
