It isn't often that I feel compelled to write about a book that I'm still reading but I make an exception for this .......

Deeply touching and compassionate, I loved this poem called Ascension by COLLEEN CORA HITCHCOCK which seems the perfect ending to such a moving book.

And if I go
while you're still here..
Know that I live on
Vibrating to a different measure
Behind a veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can
soar together again
both aware of each other.
Until then, live life to its fullest!
When you need me, just whisper
my name in your heart. . .
I will be there.

Oh I love that poem. It reminds me of the sentiment in this quote --
"He had ceased to meet us in particular places, in order to meet us everywhere." by C.S. Lewis.
