At the loss of a very dear friend, too early in life, I was reminded of these words by James Whitcomb Riley and it carried a calming, comforting message to me...I know of someone that has recently suffered such a loss and hope these words will work for them, too...think about it...J
I cannot say, and I will not say
that she is dead - she is just away!
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
She has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since she lingers there.
And you - O you, who the wildest yearn
For the old time step and glad return,
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here;
Think of her still as the same, I say:
She is not dead - she is just away!!!
