I am I and you are you.

    Well done. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? All too true. The material can only bind when we allow it to. (Report) Reply

    what literary device is used? in this particular line..... Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

    It's just so hard to think of death that way when you loose a friend or relative. Nevertheless, I wish everybody should feel like that when it's my turn because my biggest fear is not death itself but people's reaction. Great piece (Report) Reply

    This beautiful poem has brought such peace to my aching heart. My granddaughter will read it tomorrow at the funeral of my precious husband. We had 58 years together before he died last Thursday (Report) Reply

    Death is the final destiny. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. (Report) Reply

    Absolutely fantastic.
    It was read at a funeral, I attended,
    From memory.
    The gentleman that had passed was young
    and very respected.
    The country was England it was a cold and windy September
    The gentleman reciting the poem was wearing a kilt and begun the poem as the earth was being shoveled into the grave.
    As heartbreaking as THAT will always be this poem has since become our family tradition.
    When any of us mention a passed family member we remind each other he/she is only only in the other room it produces smiles and great fond memories. (Report) Reply
