When I Must Leave You

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

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 the things the same,
Feed not your lonliness
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 near;
And never, never
be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
