In Memoriam of Andrey Stenin

Do Not Stand By My Grave And Weep

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 snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn 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 stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.

From a Friend:
“Rest in peace my friend. May the God of this world give to you the peace which we all look for in this troubled world. May he comfort your mother in this time that no parent should have to endure. May someone somewhere realize from your work the evil of war and what it does to men’s hearts. May we see the good in humankind by stopping this carnage now. I pray that the God of this world wraps his arms around you and welcomes you to your final resting place.”
