Prayer of the Day

Nov 2, 2017

Death Is Nothing...
I have just moved to the neighboring room. I am who I am…
You are whom you are, that which we were to one another,
We will always be. Call me by my name.
Speak to me like you always have.
Don’t use a different tone… Do not be solemn or sad.
Continue to laugh at that which made us laugh together.
Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be pronounced at home, As it always was,
Without pomposity or gloom. Life is still the same,
It is what it always was. The thread is not broken.
Why should I be away from your thoughts?
Just because I am away from your sight?
I am not far, just on the other side of the road.
-Saint Augustine
