I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still -- 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 to 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 think of me as gone--
I am with you still in each new dawn.
