Though we need to weep your loss, You dwell in that safe place in our hearts, Where no storm or night or pain can reach you. Let us not look for you only in memory, Where we would grow lonely without you. You would want us to find you in presence, Beside us when beauty brightens, When kidness glows and music echoes eternal tones- John O'Donohue
