To Those I Love

By Isla Paschal Richardson

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, for who knows but that I shall be oftentimes?
I’d come, I’d come
could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief be barriers?
And when you hear a song I used to sing, or see a bird I loved –
let not the thought of me be sad, for I am loving you just as I always have…
You were so good to me…
So many things I wanted still to do…
So many, many things to say to you… Remember that I did not fear…
It was just leaving you I could not bear to face… We cannot see Beyond…But this I know!
I loved you so – “twas heaven here with you”!

You will always be remembered!
