Do not grieve that I have crossed
To - I can't tell you where;
Do not weep, do not be lost
And burdened down with care;
Don't ache for what you cannot reach,
In time, you will come too;
You cannot know, do not beseech -
Now is not time for you.
You dream I miss you: and I might,
And still watch, from above,
And warm your presence, in the night
Outlived by lasting love;
Or nothing may yet wait beyond,
And void alone is death.
But you won't care, when you are gone,
Live, live, while there is breath.
