Emily Dickinson - Forever at His side to walk

Forever at His side to walk --
The smaller of the two!
Brain of His Brain --
Blood of His Blood --
Two lives -- One Being -- now --

Forever of His fate to taste --
If grief -- the largest part --
If joy -- to put my piece away
For that beloved Heart --

All life -- to know each other --
Whom we can never learn --
And bye and bye -- a Change --
Called Heaven --
Rapt Neighborhoods of Men --
Just finding out -- what puzzled us --
Without the lexicon!

Becoming a Christian would be a mixed blessing. I would taste grief and little joy and little knowledge, and then go to a heaven that does nothing but puzzle us now.
