Life has changed, not ended. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me as you always did. Laugh at the little joke we enjoyed together. Party, smile, think of me and pray for me. Let my name be the household word it always was. Let it be spoken without effort or grief. Life means all that it ever meant, there is no unbroken continuity. Why would I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, after some brief moment all will be as it was before… only better, infinitely happier and forever. We will be together with Christ, and in all manner of things, all is well.
