            The Road We Abide

                 Death is no ending,
                    Only a bend in
                 The road we abide
                    On which joy and strife

                 Are but hills and depressions,
                    Peaks and recessions
            And closeness increases
                    As further we ride.

                 So take heart, dear traveler,
                    And company behind
            In memory that holds us
                    And love that reminds --

                 For these are eternal
                    And sorrow is brief
                 When distance we question
                    And nearness believe.
