Freedom and fear two elements of the universe with profound power. The one blinds the other gives sight. Fear can not be the end - perfect love drives out fear.
I believe - I believe in love - I believe it drives out fear - I believe in her.
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.
