It is said a man hasn�t died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our brothers and sisters.
I Am Not DeadDo not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am diamond glints of snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds encircled 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.
Lyrics by Mary Frye (1932) and Wilbur Skeels (1996)
Sleep well, Lee. I will always remember you and what we had together will stay in my heart forever.
Milliard Wesley Lehman and Erlyce Guenin Pekas, November, 1965.
Written for Millard Lehman and Ralph Saum. The mournful picture of Ralph after placing a carnation at Millard "Lee's" name at the Traveling Wall in New Phildelphia, Ohio on June 11th 2006 inspired this poem.
The two are now embracing
From the daughter of Friend,
