When I must leave you for a little while
. . .
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears,
and hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile,
and for my sake and in my name . . .
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
but fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer.
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
Soul mates we will be forever,
even if you walk your last steps with someone else.
I will always be there
to guide you in every step.
Let me go now as I long to rest from my journey.
I will leave you with the strength to carry
as my love for you will never be far from
