If I should ever leave you whom I love

To go along the Silent Way… grieve not.

Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk

Of me as if I were beside you there.

(I’d come…I’d come, could I but find a way!

But would not tears and grief be barriers?)

And when you hear a song or see a bird

I loved, please do not let the thought of me

be sad…  For I am loving you just as

I always have…

  You were so good to me!

There are so many things I wanted still

To do…so many things to say to you…

Remember that I did not fear…It was

Just leaving you that was so hard to face.

We cannot see Beyond…But this I know:

I loved you so…‘twas heaven here with you!
