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.

    Google is by and by paying $27485 to $29658 consistently for taking a shot at the web from home. I have joined this action 2 months back and I have earned $31547 in my first month from this action. I can say my life is improved completely! Take a gander at it what I do....

    My mother died at age 58. In her will she requested that this poem be read at her memorial service.

    She is a great poet who was orphaned at age 3. I am lucky to have found this wonderful poet. I can read so many more times.

    কেঁদে কেঁদে দাঁড়িয়োনা আমার শ্মশানে
    আমি সেখানে নেই আমি ঘুমাই না।
    আমি সহস্র বাতাস যা বইতে পারে।
    আমি হীরক ঝিলিক তুষারের উপর।
    আমি সূর্যালোক পাকা শস্যের উপর।
    আমি বৃষ্টি কোমল শরতের।
    সকালবেলায় যখন তুমি উঠবে ঘুম থেকে
    আমি সে দ্রুত উত্থানের বেগ।
    ঘূর্ণায়মান বিমানে শান্ত পাখির
    আমি নরম তারা যা রাতে জ্বলজ্বল করে।
    কেঁদে কেঁদে দাঁড়িয়োনা আমার শ্মশানে;
    আমি সেখানে নেই। আমি মরিনি।

    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die......it's an excellent sonnet; no need to cry standing on the chest of grave; there is no more the corpse; there the soul of the corpse now traveling with the winds, breeze to the home of love; so no need to weep

    Such an uplifting, beautiful expression of the afterlife and how it is reflected to the living in the every day experiences.
