Lakota Death Prayer

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 awake in the morning's 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 an cry
I am not there, I did not die.

Walk in Beauty Bill. . .
