After I'm Gone

Who'll be there
to comfort you gently
to hold your hands
to feel your pain
After I'm gone
will it be the moon
who hears your crying
will it be the stars
who hears your lonesome song
There's no denying
that you'll be missing me badly
that you'll continue to be faithful
for a man that's not there
We had our days
full of our enjoying
full of us belonging
to each other's soul
But now it's over
I must be going
I can't be staying
my love

Who'll be there
to hold you tightly
to touch you softly
to kiss you deeply
After I'm gone
will it be the juniper
who answers your calling
will it be the river
who collects your sighs
None but the rain
will cleanse your body
None but the mountain
will absolve your tears
None but the morning
will soothe your yearning
will tell of my returning
I'm gone

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
