Uplifting Epitaphs

Epitaphs that help with the grieving process by uplifting the spirit of the reader. Bringing joy or hope from the life lived and remembered, rather than focusing on pain of the loss. Many of these epitaphs come from scripture, as the Bible contains many uplifting texts about death.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep - Headstone Epitaphs Poems

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 sunlight 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.
