In Memory of Smith Dobson
"My Dear Friend - I'll Miss You Always" - BRUNI
Smith was killed in a car accident April 20, 2001
Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I, and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way
Which you always used
Put no difference in your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we enjoyed together
Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
That always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all
That it ever meant
It is the same unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you,
For an interval
Somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.
