i'll miss you.

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 my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way 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 we always enjoyed together
Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household name that it always was
Let it be spoken without effect
Without the trace of shadow on it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is unbroken continuity
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
