Death Is Nothing At All - Poem by akingbehin daniel murphy
Death is nothing at all...
I have only slipped away into the
I am I, and you are you...
Whatever we were to each other,
that we are still...
Call me by my old familiar name,
speak to me
in the easy way which you
Put no difference in your tone;
wear no forced air of solemnity
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed
Play, smile, think of me, pray for
Let my name be ever the
household word that it always
Let it be spoken without effect,
without the ghost of a shadow
Life mean all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
there is absolutely unbroken
What is this death but a
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am just waiting for you, for an
Somewhere near, just around the
All is well.
