Scroll Frame-Tall

One of my best friends in NC lost her husband last Saturday.  I know she is devastated.  I wanted to send her some comfort so I decided to send a poem my doctor sent me after my husband died.  I decided to create a frame for it so she could have it on display.

I made this frame from an svg file from My Scrap Chick.  It is called Scroll Frame-Tall.  I added some Anna Griffin flowers and some pearls for bling.  

This is the poem I sent  her.  It's comforting to know they are in the "next room" waiting for us.

Death Is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

  1. Beautiful poem and a friend of ours lost her husband over the Christmas weekend as well and this was the poem featured in the brochure at the funeral. I really can see where it would be a comfort and I am sure your friend will love you for thinking of her. Framing it and adding the embellishments really makes for a lovely gift.


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
