Until We Meet Again
I’m writing this from heaven,
Where I dwell with God above
I am resting here with the angels
Who surround me now with love.
But though I may seem far away,
We will never truly part.
For part of me lives on with you
Forever in your heart
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 softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush.
I am in the graceful rush
of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the flowers that bloom,
I am the quiet room.
I am the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I do not die.
