Grieve not for me when I am gone,

Nor fret for that we can no longer have.

Recall with pleasure all the times we had

For good or ill, through tears and blessed joy.

Two kindred souls, one flesh, one mind, one life,

One love, one faith in all eternity.

The only earthly love we ever had,

Or ever felt the pressing need to gain.

Ne need to search beyond Death’s darkest door,

For there I wait, in patience infinite.
