“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, 
When the funds are low and the debts are high, 
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, 
When care is pressing you down a bit, 
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit. 
Life is queer with its twists and turns, 
As every one of us sometimes learns, 
And many a failure turns about, 
When he might have won had he stuck it out; 
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow- 
You may succeed with another blow. 
Often the goal is nearer than, 
It seems to a faint and faltering man, 
Often the struggler has given up, 
When he might have captured the victor’s cup, 
And he learned too late when the night slipped down, 
How close he was to the golden crown. 
Success is failure turned inside out- 
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, 
And you never can tell how close you are, 
It may be near when it seems so far, 
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit- 
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit” 

 John Greenleaf Whittier


Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep 

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!)
