Uplifting Quotes

May you find encouragement in these Uplifting quotes.

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.

of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starts that shine at night.

I am with you still in each new dawn.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.

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.
