Poem About Death That I Have Found To Be Very Comforting

poem about death

Many years ago, in an old newspaper, I found this poem about death that I have found very comforting in times of bereavement. I beleive it was in the “Dear Abby” section, but the author was not named. However, I have held onto it for all these years, and I’d like to share it with you. Hopefully, when needed, it will also bring you some comfort during your time of mourning the passing of a loved one in your life.

Here’s the poem:


“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 the snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain;

I am the gentle autum’s 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 star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.”

You, like me, have probably lost someone special in your life. With all that it meant for you, and all the feelings it brought, you may have desired to deliver an eulogy which honored that person’s memory in the right way

As we continue on in life, there will come a time again when this solem occassion shall arise. And once again, you will desire to be able to honor that specia someonel.

Right now, as before, that may seem a duanting task, and yet you should know that giving a eulogy befitting of that special person can be one of the most rewarding things you have ever done in your life.
