This is possibly one of the most famous funeral poems. Here it is performed and sung by Katherine Jenkins.

‘Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep’ is a poem written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye.

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.

This poem, copyright 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye, is often requested, in advance, as individuals prepare their own Pre-Paid Funeral Plan.
