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 glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die~Unknown

Two days ago I would have shoved this quote aside. Not thinking twice about it, but now it strikes me. It hits me like lightning and every time I read it, I feel tears well up in my eyes. I am the toughest girl around. I could hold my own in a fight against a boy. Wouldn't cry if I broke a bone. Hell I barely cried ever.
