Seven years, and still best friends February 15, 2015

Like a long lost best friend, Ash’s presence is as bold and bright as it was seven years ago. We don’t need to speak. We don’t need to phone. We don’t need to see you. But we know you’re there. And you know we’re here. And all is good in the world.

Death is nothing at all.

I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.

Whatever we were to each other, that, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me.
Pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.

It is the same that it ever was.

There is absolute unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am but waiting for you.

For an interval.

Somewhere. Very near.

Just around the corner.

All is well.
