"When I must leave you for a
little while, please do not grieve
and shed wild tears and hug
your sorrow to you through the
years, but start out bravely with
a gallant smile; and for my sake
and in my name live on and do
all things the same. Feed not
your loneliness on empty days,
but fill each waking hour in
useful ways. Reach out your
hand in comfort and in cheer
and I in turn will comfort you
and hold you near; and never,
never be afraid to die, for I am
waiting for you in the sky!"
