Harold Lloyd Fox

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am the 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 waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling 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.

Rest in peace, sweet Papaw.
We will always love you
