Song for my dad

That is so beautiful and stirring. As I said before I wish I lived closer so I could attend Jesse's service but I can be with you in spirit and thought. I always loved the following that I heard read at funerals:

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 glint on snow

I am the sunLight on the ripened grain

I am the gently falling autumn rain

When you wake in the morning hush

I am the swift upLighting rush

of quiet birds in circling flight

I am the soft starLight at night

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there, I do not sleep

I don't know who wrote it but I always loved it.
