I am trying to find a poem for a friend. She said she saw it in an old movie.
Here are a couple of remembered phrases:
"Don't cry for me for I am not here"
"Remember me when you see the gentle rain, the birds and deer."
Thanks for any help you might provide.
maybe this one ?
the author is Mary Frye ( but see note below, please )
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.
but it was later turned into a song, by J. Brunner
Carried on the wind
(Do not stand at my grave and weep )
by J. Brunner
From the moment that he learned that she was gone
He began to remember all the wonderful things they'd done
And the things that she wanted to be when she grew old
Ended before they started and he felt his heart grow cold
And then the wind began to blow and on it he heard her voice
Sweet as he remembered telling him he had a choice
He could either dwell on the past Or he could choose to see her
Still alive in the world they'd had
The wind said: 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
From the moment that he heard what the wind had said
That she was not alive because he had thought her dead
And if he remembered
And if he did his part
She would live forever
Forever within his heart
Because the wind said:
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 waken in the morning's hush
I am the sweet 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.
Thank you so much. I called my friend and she that was it exactly. I think she had confused two poems at first. I have a friend who is a poetry buff, who came up with this one:
"Remember Me" by Renee Womble
When the sun shines upon the dew covered grasses
Remember me my smiles and gentle loving caresses
When the rain falls from the darkened clouded sky
Remember me and the tears I did cry
When lightening crashes through the darkest night
Remember me, and how I searched for what was always right
When thunder rolls and rumbles through the air
Remember me and I will always be there
When you see a rainbow arcing across the sky
Remember me and please do not cry
When you see things as wonderous as waterfalls
Remember me and how I always gave my all
When you hear a child laugh in joy and glee
Always always remember me
When you see that someone stuggles to be recognized
Remember me and how I always tried
When you see two lovers walking hand in hand
Remember me as you walk across this land
When you see a moon shining in the sky so bright
Remember me and my love for all that is right
When you see the wonderful and fasincating things
this world has to hold
Remember me as you grow old
For all I have asked is rememberance and love
For this is all I have ever dreamed of
When you realise what could have been
What could of happened back then
Just recall my words for that is how I wish it to be
Always always remember me.
However, it was the "Do not stand at my grave and weep" which was the one from the movie.
( I was in doubt too ... )
