Emily Dickinson - If all the griefs I am to have

If all the griefs I am to have
Would only come today,
I am so happy I believe
They'd laugh and run away.

If all the joys I am to have
Would only come today,
They could not be so big as this
That happens to me now.

The poem is well versed on the passing of a loved one. It clearly states in my opinion, after all the trials and tribulations in a life-time, that when one is called home by the good Lord, all of your pain and suffering is over. Amen

Jerome Lomax from United States
