tears

AND GOD WILL
wipe away every tear from their eyes.

THERE SHALL BE
no more death
nor sorrow
nor crying.

THERE SHALL BE
no more pain.

FOR THE FORMER THINGS WILL HAVE PASSED AWAY.
– Revelation 21.6

Pass to thy Rendezvous of Light
Pangless except for us –
Who slowly ford the Mystery
Which thous hast leaped across!  – Emily Dickinson

I read this the other day . . . it comforts and sorrows at the same time.  Comforts because it affirms the normalcy of death, sorrows because . . . I’m not old, and something is wrong with this picture.

” . . . as you got older and older, you had more and more friends on the other side of death and eventually the balance tipped, you found yourself preparing to go there yourself.” – Jonathan Rosen, “Joy Comes In The Morning.”

I conclude that there are right now so many “Thoughts that oft do lie too deep for tears.” – Wordsworth.
