'Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep' is a beautiful and moving poem, intended to be a lasting memorial for all who are mourning a loved one. Its message of comfort, hope and renewal has brought consolation to thousands.
The author is unknown yet it gained national renown when it was read on the Bookworm TV programme on Remembrance Sunday by the father of a soldier, years after he was killed in Northern Ireland. The soldier had left a copy of this poem addressed 'to all my loved ones'.
This special edition of 'Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep' is illustrated by Paul Saunders.
