Oh, joy!
Words like this
Do not come first
To the breaking
To the aching heart
Your loved one
Is free
Finally free
Do not hurry
Do not be eager
To join up
With the freed ones
Before being called home
Your journey
Is not to grieve
So deeply
That you can see
The final light Beyond all light
Your journey
Is to live
How you wish
The freed ones
To have lived
Happy and long
By your side
Honor the freed ones
Take each day
Remember all
That you wanted for them
And give it to yourself.
