Welcome

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP
~Mary Frye~

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 glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

 

 

SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU
Matt Monroe 1962 -1985
Written by Hal Shaper, Antonio DeVita & Giorgio Calabrese

Softly, I will leave you softly
For my heart would break
If you should leave
And see me go

So I leave you softly
Long before you miss me
Long before your arms beg me to stay
For one more hour
For one more day

After all the years
I can't bear the tears
To fall, so softly
As I leave you there
Softly, long before you kiss me
Long before your arms can beg me stay
For one more hour
For one more day

After all the years
I can't bear the tears
To fall, so softly
As I leave you there
As I leave you there
As I leave you there
