To Those I Love

User Rating: / 5

If I should ever leave you,
Whom I love
To go along the silent way...Grieve not.
Nor speak of me with tears.

But laugh and talk of me
As if I were beside you there.
(I'd come... I'd come,
Could I but find a way!
But would not tears and
And grief be barriers?)
And when you hear a song
Or see a bird I loved,
Please do not let the thought of me
Be sad...for I am loving you
Just as I always have...
You were so good to me!
There are so many things
I wanted still to do...
So many things I wanted to say
to you... Remember that
I did not fear... It was
Just leaving you
That was so hard to face.
We cannot see beyond...
But this I know:
I loved you so...
'twas heaven here with you
