A Poem Loved by Kevin
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve or shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow thorough the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile and for my sake and in God’s name,
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour In useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
and I 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.
