There is a love so strong it dares defy
Relentless Death. From that dark mystery
It reaches out to comfort us; but we,
Who mourn because beloved flesh must die,
Weep unaware. If only we would try
To pierce the shadows, death's dark veil might be
One moment lifted—we might touch or see.
Instead we weep while priceless moments fly.
And yet it seems that we can dimly sense
A something near, intangible, unseen,
A mystic source of life from which intense
Vitality floods out to us. We lean
To ancient dogmas, therefore little guess
That love has sought to lighten our distress.
