Don't Cry For Me by WickedNox Don't Cry For Me by WickedNox
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's rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
-Anonymous

Cool poem, and the photo- I love the angle of the shot on the gravestone, sort of looking upwards, gives it more of that mourning feeling... Well, it does for me at least :)

I really love the perspective... beautiful picture, and the headstone is really beautiful. Looks like many tears have been cried on that headstone... or rain, but the poem fits so well. Great presentation :D
