Do not stand at my grave and weep 千风之歌

看了权大妈在部落格的一篇有关Delete的文章后,有感而发地找了这首诗和你分享.

千 风 之 歌

请不要佇立在我的墓前哭泣
因为我並不在那里
我並沒有沉睡不醒
而是化为千风
我已化身为千缕微風
翱翔在无限宽广的天空里

秋天 我化身为阳光
照射在田野間
冬天 我化身为白雪
綻放钻石般的閃耀光芒
晨曦升起之际
我幻化为飞鸟
轻声地唤醒你
夜幕低垂之時
我幻化成星辰
溫柔地守护你

請不要佇立在我的墓前哭泣
因为我並不在那里
我並沒有沉睡不醒
而是化为千风
我已化身为千缕微风
翱翔在无限宽广的天空里

千の風になって

私のお墓の前で 泣かないでください
そこに私はいません 眠ってなんかいません
千の風に千の風になって
あの大きな空を吹き渡っています
秋には光になって
畑にふりそそぐ
冬はダイヤのように きらめく雪になる
朝は鳥になって あなたを
目覚めさせる
夜は星になって あなたを見守る私のお墓の前で
泣かないでください
そこに私はいません 死んでなんかいません

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep

I am a thousand winds that blow
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 sun 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 circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

我们爱的人,爱的朋友,一直都在… 🙂

  1. Hmm…crying at the grave? Well…not sure about you,but i certainly thought about my own death.And yes,no one is to be crying at my grave.They are not allowed to wear the typical funeral colours(black,white,blue or other dark colours).Everyone will wear bright and happy colours to send me off and no sad songs will be played,only happy and uplifting songs will be allowed.
    In short, my funeral will be like a huge carnival or party bash.Ha! Because to me,death is another phase in Life that we all have to go through.

  2. Hi Dasmond… Juz want to say Thanks for this poem. It’s a reminder for me that both grandma (passed away last 2 wks ago) and my beloved ah ma (passed away 10 yrs ago) were ard still no matter in wat form. Most imptly, in our heart always…..

  4. ya….we always cant get over the loss of our beloved one…..sometimes we feeling down or lost becuz they r still deep in our heart…….altot they r not ard animore…..we still gotta live strong……

  5. When it comes to death, no one knows what will happen. My wife and I have told our children that we want a simple and cheap coffin since we want to be cremated. Also we told them we do not need to have anything fancy except some prayers. Most important is we told them not to cry as this will prevent our souls from departing this world in peace. In my mother’s time, it is not easy to bring up the topic about death. But I do believe in our generation, it will be okay to talk about it and letting our children know what to do when the time has come.

    We all will miss MC King’s smile.

  6. hi..在想红的艺人。。。真的会和我们做个朋友吗?!?

  7. Hi Des…

    indeed, seems like couple of us had already seen the youtube in Sharon’s blog. But thanks for the clearer explanation both in chinese and english.

    But how come you give me the feeling that you are quite a sad person ? You seem to be very cheery over TV and in person, are you not ???

    Whatever, I hope you have set your resolution for 2008.

    My resolution is – everyone gets healthy and stay happy !

  8. hey dasmond long tym nv come ur bloggie liiao le cuz gt alot of hw….sry arh……..lol……ytd juz get scolded by mum for playing basketball in sch uniform sian…haix

  9. Hi Dasmond

    I’m reading your blog for the 1st time and I’m touched by your sharing of this poem and song. Lovely song isn’t it? Hearing this song makes me stronger. Death is not really that sad afterall, if you live life to the fullest. I’m sure the author of the poem feels the same way too. GOD BLESS

  10. 师兄, life’s all about ups and downs… & death’s definitely not an end.
    It’s only a passport to another universe, juz stranger to us…
    Stay positive ya?
    Remember: your smile & laughter is uber contagious! 😉

    p/s: MC King, your presence will always be remembered…
