I have only slipped into the next room.
I thought I would share this with all who are traveling this long difficult journey. May it give you comfort.
I have only slipped into the next room. I am I, 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 you always did. Put no difference in your tone, wear no air of solemnity or sorrow.
Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me. Laugh as we always laughed at the jokes we shared together. Let my name be ever the household name that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without a trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was, there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight. I am waiting for you, somewhere very near-just around the corner....
All is well
