Do not stand over my grave and weep for me.
Do not grieve the loss of what I was, but rejoice at what I have become.
My pain is gone and my soul flies free.
My journey on Earth is through and a home in heaven awaits me where no more tears will there ever be.
I am at peace now, and while a part of me is gone from you, my love will be with you for all eternity.
