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 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.

Tom:

Tom was our senior platoon leader in Delta Company. He was almost revered as the most "gung ho" lieutenant we ever knew. On a mission toward the coast out of LZ Ann, it was getting late as we were standing on a little hill setting up for a night defensive position. Tom was on my left, and Captain Shotwell was on my right.

All of a sudden a lone sniper, five hundred yard away, opened up with automatic fire which hit Tom in the leg and chest. He cried out "I'm hit"
and dropped to the ground. I held him, tried to stop the blood and plug the chest wound, but to no avail. I will never forget Tom or that moment.
