Love Never Disappears By St Augustine

St Augustine's, 'Love Never Disappears', delves on the fact that death does not change too much and therefore, the ones left behind should not be sad. Death is just like moving on from one phase of life to the other. The poem, written from the point of view of the dead and deceased, reveals that a departed soul would never like to be remembered with watery eyes. Instead, people alive should behave as nothing ever happened and continue leading a normal life. He, who is gone, may be out of sight, but is not out of mind. St Augustine suggests that each day of our lives should be greeted with a smiling and cheering face, even after the departure of loved ones.
Love Never Disappears
Love never disappears for death is a non-event.
I have merely retired to the room next door.
You and I are the same; what we were for each other, we still are.
Speak to me as you always have, do not use a different tone, do not be sad.
Continue to laugh at what made us laugh.
Smile and think of me.
Life means what it has always meant.
The link is not severed.
Why should I be out of your soul if I am out of your sight?
I will wait for you; I am not here, but just on the other side of this path.
You see, all is well.
