Rest in peace Beth!

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 sun on the ripened grain
I am the gentle shower of rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am in the graceful rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night
I am in the flowers that bloom
I am in a quiet room
I am in the birds that sing
I am in each lovely thing

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep

Mommy, we miss you and love you to the sky..Jensen and Matthew
I love you baby..Edward


  1. Dear Pattie,

    at this morning's Mass, I prayed for you and your family - may Beth rest in peace and may the pain of her loss diminish with time but the memory of good time spent together bring you comfort.

    Hugs, Marion

  2. What a day you've had Pattie. God bless you and your family.

  3. I thought of you today. I hope the happy memories helped to temper the sadness of the day. Bless you and your family. I love that poem.

  4. Pattie, what a lovely poem, and so true. Rest in peace Beth.

  5. So wonderful! thank you for sharing with us.
