Verse 65

Death is nothing at all. I have only
slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we are still. Call me by my
old familiar name, speak to me
in the easy way which you always
used. Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word
that it always was. Let it be spoken
without effort. Life means all that it
ever meant. It is the same as it ever
was; there is absolutely unbroken
continuity. Why should I be out of
your mind because I am out of your
sight? I am but waiting for you, for an
interval, somewhere very near just
around the corner. All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be
as it was before-only better,
infinitely happier and forever –
we will all be one together with Christ.
