I Am Not There

Michaela Aleasha Russo

November 15, 2001 – July 15, 2010


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 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 do not die.

– Mary Elizabeth Frye (1932)
