Hey! Come get my album for free! http://www.benci.bandcamp.com
Enjoy!

Please note, the lyrics are written by Mary Elizabeth Frye. It is her original poem, but my original song.

Lyrics:
Don't you 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
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

When you wake up 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
Don't you stand at my grave and cry
I am not there I did not die

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Benci for “Sunlight (M. E. Frye)”:
I am ashamed to say that I didn't get this track when I first heard it as well as I feel I understand it now.

Very sad tune, and kudos to M.E. for the lyrics. This is going to get my highest praise: belongs in the next [good] Tarantino movie.

Thank you,
-Shoham

Thank you. There's nothing to be ashamed about, there is always a deeper meaning to everything. That's pretty high praise though! Thanks!

Gabrielle gave feedback to Benci for “Sunlight (M. E. Frye)”:
I really like this one. The poem is really beautiful, and it fits well with your song, kind of unexpectedly. If I were just reading the poem and had to think of what kind of song would fit it, I'd probably go with a dramatic ballad(maybe Canada's own Celine!) since it's uplifting. It's cool that surf music/death poems work well together!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it. I've been sitting on an older version of this one for years now, and so I updated it and added the second part.
