Just Around the Corner
Death is nothing at all and doesn't count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened, everything has remained exactly as it was.
I am I and you are you and the old life that we lived so fondly together
is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in an easy way, which you always used.
Put no difference into your time. Wear no forced air of solemnly and sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort,
without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken, continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I'm out of sight?
I am but waiting for you for an interval,
Somewhere very near,
Just Around the Corner.
-Dorothy (Nana) Norris Squires
