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.
Mary Frye


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
From a headstone in Ireland


In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.
Robert Ingersoll


When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Kahlil Gibran


He spake well who said that graves are the footprints of angels.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


A human life is a story told by God.
Hans Christian Andersen


To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.

The memory of a good person is a blessing.
Proverbs 10:7

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
Author Unknown


It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals? Benjamin Franklin


Grieve not, nor think of me with tears, but laugh
and talk of me as if I were beside you. I loved you so-
'Twas heaven here with you.
Isla Paschal Richardson


We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.

And with the morn those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since and lost awhile.
John Henry Newman



The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.
Eileen Elias Freeman


Good-night! good-night! as we so oft have said
Beneath this roof at midnight, in the days
That are no more, and shall no more return.
Thou hast but taken up thy lamp and gone to bed;
I stay a little longer, as one stays
To cover up the embers that still burn.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.
Emily Dickinson


Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
Author Unknown


When he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars
And he will make the face of heav'n so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet


Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
Author Unknown


For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. William Penn

  2. I am not dead, I have only become inhuman; That is to say, undressed myself of laughable prides, and infirmities... But not as a man undresses to creep into bed, byt as an athlete, stripping for a race. The delicate ravel of nerves, that made me measureof certain fiction, called good, & evil, that made me contract with pain, and expand with pleasure; Fussily adjusted, like a little electricscope... That is gone true, I never miss it, if the universe does, how easily replaced!! But all the rest is heightened, widened, set free... I admired the beauty while I was human, now, I"m part of the beauty.I wander in the air, being mostly gas & water, and flow in the ocean; Touch you, and Asia, at the same moment; Have a hand in the sunrise, and a glow in the grass, I left the light, precipitate of ashes, to earth, for a love tokes.
