Steh nicht am meinem Grab und weine.

Ich bin nicht dort; ich schlafe nicht.

Ich bin tausend Winde, die wehen.

Ich bin der Diamantglanz auf dem Schnee.

Ich bin das Sonnenlicht auf reifem Korn.

Ich bin der warme Herbstregen.

Wenn du aufwachst in des Morgens stille,

bin ich der Flügelschlag der stummen Vögel,

die über die ihre Kreise ziehen.

Ich bin der sanfte Sterne, die nachts leuchten.

Steh nicht am meinem Grab und weine.

Ich bin nicht dort; ich bin nicht tot.
