DO NOT WEEP FOR ME
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 glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
Tomorrow is the most Important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
Day is done...
Gone the sun
From the lake...
From the hills...
From the sky.
All is well...
God is nigh.
Dims the sight
And a star....
Gems the sky....
Falls the night.
Cora Louise Minor Dunaway (1922 - 1988)*
