Weep not for me

EM PORTUGUES AQUI: Não chore por mim
_________________________

Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell
among the wonders of the earth; for my larger
self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other
side of pain…on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine
that touches your skin, a tropical breeze
upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart
and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.
I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your
hour of need, I will be there to comfort you.
I will share your tears, your joys, your fears,
your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels,
and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses
the flowers. I am the calm that follows a
raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats
among the garden of God, and I am pure
white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die,
as long as you remember me…
with a smile and a sigh.

    MUY BIEN HECHO PARA TODAS LAS PERSONAS QUE HEMOS PERDIDO A UN SER QUERIDO QUE POEMA TAN HERMOSO EL QUE UD NOS ESCRIBE EN EL BLOCK BASTA CON LEERLO PARA SENTIR EN NUESTRA PIEL LA ESPERANZ Y EL AMOR REFLEJADOS QN CUALQUIER COSA DE LA QUE UD NOS ESCRIBE EN EL BLOCK LO VOY A GUARDAR EN UN LUGAR ESPECIAL PARA RECORDARLO SIEMPRE Y TAMBIEN PARA RECITARLO EN OCASIONES QUE SEAN NECESARIAS PARA MERMAR EL DOLOR DE LOS QUE PIERDEN A SUS SERES QUERIDOS GRACIAS PAULO PORQUE NOS HACES MEJORES PORQUE NOS HACES SENTIR COSAS QUE PARECIAN QUE ESTABAN MUERTAS Y COBRANB VIDA AL LEER UN RENGLON DE TUS ESCRITOS

    Ich hab mir die Freiheit genommen, diese Gefühle auf deutsch zu übersetzen

    Wein nicht um mich,
    wenn ich nicht mehr unter den Wundern dieser Erde aufhalte,
    denn mein größeres ICH ist frei.
    Meine Seele ist auf der anderen Seite der Dunkelheit,
    auf der anderen Seite der Schmerzen…
    Wein nicht um mich,
    ich bin der Schimmer der Sonnenstrahls, der deine Haut berührt,
    der warme Hauch des Windes auf deinem Gesicht,
    die wohlige Stille in deinem Herzen,
    und die Geborgenheit eines Kindes in den Armen seiner Mutter.
    Wein nicht um mich,
    ich wiege mich in den Armen der Unendlichkeit,
    gehe mit den Engeln spazieren und höre Musik hinter den Sternen.
    Wein nicht um mich,
    ich werde immer mit dir sein.
    Ich bin der Friede, bin die Liebe,
    bin die Zärtlichkeit des Windes, der über die Blumen streift,
    ich bin die Ruhe nach dem Sturm.
    Ich bin ein Herbstblatt, das im Garten Eden durch die Luft gleitet,
    und der reine weiße Schnee, der sanft auf deiner Hand schmilzt.
    Wein nicht um mich,
    ich werde niemals sterben
    solange du dich mit einem wehmütigem Lächeln an mich erinnern kannst.

    They are -our ‘departed beloved persons’- everything that the poem says and more!!
    They are our tenderest spot in our soul! They are our .. tears in our eyes! They are the .. sounds of our music! Because they are our sweetest, most secret and brightest LOVE :the IDEAL love, the Utopian love, the Fairytale love. Because the love of our DREAMS, the .. unfulfilled love is the one that is .. beyond the worries and the ugliness of everyday common life. They are there, our Rose, the North Star.
    LOVE,
    Thelma xxx

  12. Fatima Paulos says:

    En español:

    No chores por mi cuando no viva ya
    entre las maravillas de la tierra, porque ahora soy libre
    Mi alma se alegra más allá del dolor, más allá de la oscuridad.
    No chores por mi, porque ahora soy un rayo de sol
    que toca tu piel, una brisa tropical
    en tu rostro, la alegría silenciosa en tu corazón
    la inocencia de los bebés en los brazos de sus madres.
    Soy la esperanza en una noche oscura. Y cuando necesites, estaré ahí a tu lado.
    dividiremos las lágrimas, las alegrías, los miedos.
    Las decepciones y los triunfos.
    No llores por mi porque estoy en los brazos de Dios.
    Camino con los angeles, y oigo la música de las esferas.
    Soy la paz, el amor, el viento suave que acaricia las flores.
    Soy una hoja de otoño que vuela entre los jardines de Dios,
    Soy el inmaculado copo de nieve que cae suavemente en tu mano.
    No chores, porque nunca moriré
    mientras te acuerdes de mí
    con una sonrisa o un suspiro.

    Precioso. gracias Paulo Coelho.

    Poem by Jodie Senkyrik

    Do Not Wipe Your Tears Away

    Do not wipe your tears away.

    Let them flow down your cheek.

    Let them create a stream on your face

    to allow the healing waters to flow.

    Let the waters cleanse your skin

    and wash your face with silk.

    Let them caress you lightly

    and reveal to you, your heart.

    Let the water fall to the earth,

    and a tree will grow from it.

    Let your tears flow from their depths

    and they will release the seeds of your soul.

    Do not be careful.

    Do not be contained

    or proper or polite.

    Do not wipe your tears away.

    Taste them on your lips and

    know that you have graced yourself today.

  23. katie says:

  24. Annie says:

    Amazing.

  26. Gabriela Ramos says:

    This poem made me think of my father, whom I lost about 15 years ago and not a days go by when i wish he was here….With his memory sometimes leaving me sometimes, and forgeting the way he smiled, laughed, and even spoke this made all of these memories warm my heart…Thank you!

  27. Amy Green says:

    This is simply breathtaking. Words have such great power and evoke such strong and real emotion. Thank you Paulo x

  28. Olta Canka says:

    It says it all.

    “Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine
    that touches your skin, a tropical breeze.”

    Love

  29. Julette says:

    THANK YOU Paulo, I didn’t know it but I needed to read exactly these words exactly today.

    Maybe it’s the state of my soul or perhaps the beautiful simplicity of the verses, or both, but I was brought to tears of joy and appreciation for my mother’s life as I read this. It is so comforting to believe and be reminded that all of nature, love and goodness is where she is…making her available, always. ♥~

  30. Sham Sankar says:

    My heart is full of Love for you,
    When it breaks, be not sad
    It will still be Love,
    leaking all around.

    Otro poema lindo.

    EN PAZ

    Muy cerca de mi ocaso, yo te bendigo, vida,
    porque nunca me diste ni esperanza fallida,
    ni trabajo injusto, ni pena inmerecida;

    porque veo al final de mi rudo camino
    que yo fui el arquitecto de mi propio destino;

    que si extraje la miel o la hiel de las cosas,
    fue porque en ellas puse hiel o hieles sabrosas:
    cuando planté rosales, coseché siempre rosas.

    …Cierto, a mis lozanías va a seguir el invierno:
    !mas que tu me diste que mayo fuese eterno!

    Hallé sin duda largas noches de mis penas;
    mas no me prometiste tu solo noches buenas;
    y en cambio tuve algunas santamente serenas…

    Amé, fui amado, el sol acarició mi faz.
    ¡Vida, nada me debes! ¡Vida, estamos en paz!
    Amado Nervo

  32. I write poems like this.. I not’t like anymore wishy-washy lines, I prefere the onew about the worrior of lights! :)
    Hugs! x

  33. shilpa says:

  35. lata sharma says:

    Do not weep for me cause I never die

    Just close your eyes an think about me

    you will find me just by your side

    smiling and wiping your tears

    soothing and easing your pain

    so don’t weep when you don’t find me by your side

  36. Mai says:

    This reminds me of a poem attributed to Mary Elizabeth Frye (1932) whose first few llines read:
    “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”

  37. roshi says:

    Don’t cry for me when I am gone
    Because I will still be here
    Every time you think of me
    Every time you miss me
    Love is eternal
    Love is not constrained by time or physical presence
    Its transcends all this because our soul in itself is eternal.
    When you miss me I will hug you
    If you are happy I will laugh with you
    If you are sad I will hold you close
    All you have to do is know that even if you don’t see me I am here
    For as long as I am alive in your memory I will and can never die
    Thank you for all the times we shared
    The times we laughed, the times we cried
    The times we sat in silence
    whilst our souls spoke silent poetry to each other
    that we couldn’t hear or understand
    Your life made mine the richer
    Because you added a new facet to my life
    As I saw and loved the world through your eyes
    Thank you for loving me
    Someday we will see each other again
    Someday we will laugh together again
    Share beauty and joy and love
    Just believe
    And we will
