“I am the frost that nips your toes!”

There’s a well known Funeral poem called ‘Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep’. It’s by Mary Elizabeth Frye and if you google it, it’ll come up easily on your search. Well here’s another take on that poem that I once used. I like both versions for very different reasons but I find this one much easier on the thought processes.
“Don’t cry for me now I’ve died, for I’m still here, I’m by your side.
My body’s gone but my soul is here, please don’t shed another tear.
I’m still here, I’m all around.
I am the snowflake that kisses your nose.
I am the frost that nips your toes.
I am the sun shining so bright.
I am the rain refreshing the earth.
I am the laughter, I am the mirth.
I am the bird up in the sky.
I am the cloud that’s drifting by.
I am the thoughts inside your head.
While I’m still here, I can’t be dead.”
Enough said I think!
