Funeral Poem Togetherness
Remember – I have only slipped away into the next room,
Whatever we were to each other,
That we are still;
Call me by my old familiar name,
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, Smile, and Think of me
Let my name be the household word that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effort
-Life means all that it ever was;
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for an interval somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well, nothing is Past, nothing is Lost;
One brief moment and all will be as it was before-
Infinitely happier and forever
We will all be one… together.
By Henry Scott Holland
