Papaw Gentle 10/13/25 - 3/17/09
Huntsville, Alabama

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 awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry..
I am not there. I did not die.

"and with your final heartbeat
kiss the world goodby,
and go in peace and laugh on glory side
and fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus and live."
