I Am A Thousand Winds - So Beautiful




Lyrics to I Am A Thousand Winds
:
Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

Don’t stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die
I am the swift rush of birds in flight
Soft stars that shine at night

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow
Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

Don’t stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die
I am the swift rush of birds in flight
Soft stars that shine at night

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

Don’t stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow

I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow


This beautiful song was written for the victims of the Japanese Tsunami.
You can almost feel and taste ancestral memories here
A thousand winds touching upon your hair,a rush of birds and sunlight on grain
Very spiritual.
A thousand winds in the sunlight, the autumn rain and glinting snow.
A thousand winds keeps you awake and you are special
A diamond glint on snow.

Diamonds are hard to destroy, like the spirit of the people and memories left behind.

So don't cry at my grave for I did not die
I am the thousand winds that blow, a diamond glint on snow.

This song is so precious and lovely.

That truly is beautiful. It reminds me a bit of a prayer that I read over and over when my mother passed away. It really helped. I can see how this beautiful song could do the same.
