"When I must leave you for a little while please do 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 loneliness on empty days, But fill
each waking hour in useful ways Reach out your hanbd in comfort and in
cheer And ! 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."
Helen Sterner Rice
