! ! Sharing Eternity - For The Sorrowing

Rating: 4.9

It should be so obvious:
all the ‘eternal values’ which we may see
as worthwhile in our life –
these, we share with those who’ve gone before..
what else more worth the sharing?

and share, more closely than we know to seek:
those whose ‘loss’ to us we mourn –
especially those so recently thought ‘lost’ to us –
they are the ones still closest to us:

they delight to hear from us, chatting in our heart;
in their eternity, so willing to forgive if we but ask;
need no medium, planchette or ectoplasm
to be contacted; if we but wish;

and in the wisdom of eternity which they share
with us within our inmost heart,
so eager now to give, and to forgive, and give again:

beloved teachers, to continue so to teach;
beloved ones, to continue so to feed, draw out our heart with love..

then share eternity, and live!
it should be so obvious..
