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 the fullest And when you need me, Just whisper my name in your heart, I will be there.
In memory of Rubye, she requests that to honor her memory, and to remember her, read or listen to “Desiderata”. As Rubye would say, “Build a bridge across forever”
