Losing a loved one is never easy. Even when we know we will be reunited one day, the pain of even saying good-bye for now is a challenge. We know we will especially miss the ones we love the most. If you know someone grieving through the loss of a loved one, this stretch bracelet could be a gentle reminder of the perseverance of the soul. Brown, black, and clear glass beads are placed alongside metal charms, with each piece corresponding to a portion of this poem:
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's gilt on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush;
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
Those comforting words are printed inside the gift box next to the bracelet. This gift makes a sweet sympathetic gift especially for children learning to wrestle with the pain of grieving for the first time.
