Default This will touch your heart!

I was reading my new issue of Reader's Digest and this poem really touched my heart, so I thought I would share it with all of you. Hope you don't mind.

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you,
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in an easy way which
you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes that we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that
it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort,
Without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.

What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you,
for an interval,
Somewhere very near,
Just round the corner.

All is well.

Thank you Stephanie....oddly enough I'd been thinking of my mother in law who died this past May and how this will be the first round of holidays without her.....but then again I think her spirit will be here.
