Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the same easy way your always have.
Laugh as we always laughed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it always was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you for an interval somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well, nothing is past, nothing has been lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before--only better, infinitely happier.
We will be one, together forever.
