Strength Within Your Heart
Dharmii Patel, Grade 8, Nagle College
Do not stand by my grave and weep,
I am not there,I do not sleep.
I am a thousands winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush,
I am the uplifting winds that rush.
Of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the soft starlight of the night.
So,do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,I did not die.
I am with you always in these small ways,
to help and guide you in the coming days.
For I am the strength beating within your heart,
and through that strength, we will never apart.
