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.

HIGH SCHOOL CLASSMATE

I went to high school with Darnell at Troup High School in Lagrange, Ga. for three years, and we both graduated in 1958. He and I weren't particularly close, but I always liked him. A very likeable guy. He was the first one out of our Senior class that we lost. May he rest in peace.
