Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.

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.

Just for today, breathe deeper.
Just for today, forget to worry and stress.
Just for today, share a smile or a kindness with a stranger.
Just for today, know yourself to be amazing and beautiful.
Just for today, forget past hurt and sadness.
Just for today, be grateful for all that is right with your world.
Just for today, breathe deeper, be kinder and smile.
