When I Am Here No Longer

When I am here no longer Grieve not for I am nothing But if a memory of me comes unbidden Haste you to that great oak That has at times so gently guarded us And spread its shady limbs above our souls Then sit you down against that hoary wrinkled trunk And view again those verdant fields Where often dancing larks on wing set flight And cautious deer do snuggle in swelling grass And when winds warm whisper Your ruddy cheek so tenderly kisses Silent hold your remembrance of me within And know that I am near At last at peace beside you And tear not that I am gone When I am here no longer 09/02/2021
