When I moved here from Boston, I did so with a heavy heart. I felt as though I were leaving a very important part of me behind. The feeling lingers. However as I was helping my brother unpack and organize I came across a battered copy of Executive Orders, by Tom Clancy. On the opening page there is a poem that served to remind me that I left nothing behind. It is called “Ascension” by Colleen Hitchcock. Perhaps it can help to remind others as it has helped me.



And if I go,

while you're still here...

Know that I live on,

vibrating to a different measure

--behind a thin 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 your life to its fullest.

And when you need me,

Just whisper my name in your heart,

...I will be there.
