Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush.
I am in the graceful rush,
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I did not die.

– Mary Elizabeth Frye

MommyWe are constantly reminded of our angel Jack in every lovely thing we see and in every loving thing we do.

Much love to our little guy today, on the 18th; the seventh month anniversary of the day he entered into our lives –

and changed us forever.

  3. That was the same poem my family passed around after my grandma died. I think about it every once in a while, and it always makes me cry.

    I am grateful that you guys know what happens after this life. I’m sure it doesn’t make the separation from Jack-Jack any easier, but at least there’s hope.
