What do you think about this poem?
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

It's one of my favourites. It can mean a great deal to the bereaved.

You should edit the lines with "I am" in front.

Yes, I've seen it a million times before. The technical literary term for it is "glurge."

I think its thoughtful and poignant.

Whatever it's literary merits may be, it's utterly wrong about the fate of the soul. It sounds like the author had abandoned all hope in God's promises, and all fear of judgement, and could fall back on nothing in their place except vague, baseless platitudes.
