I DID NOT DIE
Do not stand by my grave and grieve.
I am not there, I did not leave.
For I’m that distant shining star.
I’m all around you, never far.
I am the sparkle in children’s eyes.
I paint the blue in the autumn skies.
And in those cool sweet summer eves,
I hide in the shadows the sunshine weaves.
Yes together we laughed and cried,
But now I'm ever at your side.
For as long as I am in your heart,
We'll never really be apart.
So live your life and do be gay,
And look forward to that day,
When somewhere just around the bend,
We will surely meet again.
