Away
(Inspiring Sympathy Poems)

I cannot say
and I will not say ..
That she is dead
she is just away.

With a cheery smile
and a wave of hand ..
She has wandered
into an unknown land.

And left us dreaming
how very fair ..
Its needs must be
since she lingers there.

And you-oh you
who the wildest yearn ..
From the old-time step
and the glad return.

Think of her
faring on, as dear ..
In the love of there
as the love of here.

Think of her still
the same way, I say ..
She is not dead
she is just away.

– James Whitcomb Riley
