This was given to me by a dear friend in the Lions Club, just after the death of our son. It is one of those poems that ends up staying with you. You get in a zone and make a connection with the departed that only a poems can generate. I share it at appropriate times with other close friends and I keep it on my home page for quick access.

Really perfect for those agnostic (me) and athetists grieving and concerned about future deaths including ones own. We are made of starstuff and to starstuff we shall return.

Such a great and poignant poem. It's only the words but probably not what she really thought. In my mind she just wanted to console the mourners. Knowing that time can soothe.

Of course she’s right but...I believe in the afterlife and the spiriiual world! I still weep at my dead son’s gravestone. Cemeteries, gravestones, monuments, memorials, cenotaphs for the LIVING BEREAVED? Do we now carry virtual graves in our heads? ??
