With what a deep devotedness of woe

With what a deep devotedness of woe
I wept thy absence – o’er and o’er again
Thinking of thee, still thee, till thought grew pain,
And memory, like a drop that, night and day,
Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away!
~Thomas Moore

Life is eternal and love immortal death

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
~Rossiter Worthington RaymondCSS5

The angels are always near to those

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.  ~Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

If the people we love are stolen

If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. ~The Crow, written by James O’Barr, David J. Schow, and John Shirley, 1994Sarah

He kept at true good humours mark

He kept at true good humour’s mark
The social flow of pleasure’s tide:
He never made a brow look dark,
Nor caused a tear, but when he died.
~Thomas Love PeacockCD
