TUESDAY. Not. 18, 1873
Written for the Tri-Weekly Astorian.
Dear Mother! last night as I lay, on my bed,
I know that I was not asleep,
I was thinking of Johny, we mourn for as dead,
And, mother, I tried not to weep.
I thought of the bright happy hours gono by,
How joyous wo were in our play;
And then the largo tear drops would come in
Though I tried hard to keep them away.
I thought of his voice, as ho once used to speak,
llis form, as ho onco used to bo;
Thon just at my side a sweet v jico I could hear
Saying, " weep not, my sister, for mo,"
I lookod for the speaker, so clear every word
jtfy chamber was filled with bright lights;
" Weep not, I am near thee," in clear tones I
Although I am hid from your fight,
44 Think not of the form you havo laid neath
The body is nothing but clay;
Oh think of the land by the glad angels trod,
That never can varnish away.
That bright glorious world, free from sorrow
Where angels are chainless and free,
And while you are mourning my absence in
I'm waiting and watching o'er thee,
' I'm waiting dear sister, for loved ones to come
Where sickness and sorrow, are o'er;
In a fair deathless heaven we'll all meet again
And part with our loved ones no moro.
In one happy circle united we'll be,
And never again shed a tear;
Then weep not, my sister w hen thinkingof mo,
Remember, I'm watching o'er thee."
Then swift to my bosom came comfort and light
I knew that my brother was near;
I know that lie lives, and is happier far,
Than ever he was with us here.
And when I am lonely, he'll cornel am sure,
And whisper his sweet words of love,
And soon I will meet him, in that happy world,
The land of bright dreams above.
