In Science, individual good derived from God, the infinite All-in-all, may flow from the departed to mortals…
– Mary Baker Eddy
Sitting in a restaurant, listening to the music piping
into the space from a radio station playing “classic rock”
and Fogelberg’s voice enters, singing “Longer”
sweetly, gently, a lullabye to love – and the voice is alive
and vibrant, waves through the universe from a man
no longer walking on this planet – no longer breathing,
heart no longer pumping – yet his voice is with us still
touching, eliciting, evoking, reaching out
through the years and miles – through time and space.
Exposing death as the lie it is. Good remains.
