Don’t think of me as gone away
My journeys just begun, life holds
So many facets this
earth is only one.
Just think of me as
resting from the
Sorrows and the tears,
in a place of
Warmth and comfort where there
Are no days and years.
Think how I must be
wishing that we
Could know today,
how nothing but our
Sadness can really
pass away.
And think of me as
living in the hearts
Of those I’ve touched…
for nothing loved
Is ever lost and
I was loved so much.
