Walk Slowly

ejmoore510(7)September 5, 2010

If you should go before me, dear, walk slowly

Down the ways of death, well-worn and wide,

For I would want to overtake you quickly

And seek the journey's ending by your side.

I would be so forlorn not to descry you

Down some shining highroad when I came:

Walk slowly, dear, and often look behind you

And pause to hear if someone calls your name.

by Adelaide Love

in Memory of Dad whom I lost 3 years ago yesterday.

ejmoore510, sorry about your dad, I can see that you miss him.
I'm not sure I agree with Adelaide Love on this one, about Walking Slowly.
My thinking is that when one is released from the earthly bounds one can soar on angel wings, just leave a message at the Pearly Gates of your whereabouts and we'll meet up.

I agree with West Gardener on this one. Someone said: "It's as though they took a trip to Hawaii and forgot to sent a post-card."
Time is a matter of perception
I have outlived so many and yet, we all are connected

Your post tugged at my heart; I still miss my father, even though he passed so long, ago--in 1958. I hope that somewhere in Eternity, we'll be together, again.
