Left Side Inscription

TO OUR LOVED ONES

Do not stand at our graves and weep
We are not there, we do not sleep.

We are a thousand winds that blow,
We are the diamond glints on snow.

We are the sunlight on ripened grain
We are the gentle autumn`s rain

When you awaken in the morning`s hush,
We are the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
We are the soft stars that shine at night

Do not stand at our grave and forever cry,
We are not there,
WE DID NOT DIE

In loving memory
10 April 2006
