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 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.

Not My Son (Song written by me '68)Some changes as I forgot original)

The thought of killing turned him.
Running away a coward's flight
so many places he could have been.
Not my son, Go & Fight.
Finally brought home to his front door .
His dad not finding what was looking for.
A football scar from happier times.
but lost for a month was naught to find.
The purple hearts now count 3.
In a special ceremony to receive.
Parents say it for all to read
That's not our son, we don't believe.
Rest my friend be it where
Your spirit forever affects my care.
Not my son-is for all to see
& all their children who could not be.

Friends

Wayne and I were in grade school in Union City, New Jersey before they moved to Midland Park. He was a fine "kid" as we all remember him. I live in upstate New York and I remember going home one weekend in 1969 and seeing the article about Wayne and the others and yes, he looked the same as he did in the 6th grade.
Thanks Wayne for your service and the wall will once again be visiting Upstate NY this coming weekend and I will, once again, visit it.
To his family, thank you too.
