Do Not Stand at my Grave andWeep

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 sun 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.

Too Young to Die--Memories of Tommy and the Vietnam War

Tommy died in my arms, a hero in every sense of the word. I detailed our time together in my book, which is titled the same as the title on this remembrance. I trusted my life to him, I admired and respected him, and I loved him. I will forever carry the guilt of his death. Did I mention that I loved him?
