Maybe it’s just poem week, but my Dad shared this one with me and it really resonates. Not parted…only just apart. No more to say than that.
“Not gone…but only gone before
To where love lives on evermore.
Not lost…but only lost from sight.
As one who walks ahead at night.
Not parted…only just apart.
In memory kept close to heart.
Not of the past…but now to be
A part of all eternity.”
