Poem

I read a poem a few years ago that Had a line " Don't cry for me I'm

only in the next room " or something like that. It's refering to

death and the person who died is saying even thought you can't see

him or hear him you can talk to him because he's only in the next

room. Do you know anything about this piece.

Hi mema,

Do these lines seem familiar?

"Death is nothing at all. It does not count.

I have only slipped away into the next room

Nothing has happened.

(…)

Call me by the old familiar name.

Speak of me in the easy way which you always used to.

Put no difference into your tone.

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed

at the little jokes that we enjoyed together."

Regards,

Rainbow

Sounds close, but not exact…maybe the poem I read had been modified

from the original. The one I read was in the Burlington Vermont Free

Press many years ago.

But thank you for trying. Is this the entire Poem? If not could you

put the entire piece on this site so I could read it.

Again thank you.
