is Nothing at by Canon Henry Scott

death is nothing at all shortened version

This poem spoke to me in such a strong way. Few people have really thought about an afterlife, except in the vaguest terms. Everything remains exactly as it was. Because of you, I avoided a bad grade on my English Poetry project. My heart goes out to all here who write of deep loss, many losses too close together. One brief moment and all will be as it was before only better, infinitely happier and forever we will all be one together with Christ. As life is speckled with thoughts of laughter, jokes, smiles and joy, so too are these thoughts littered throughout the poem.

Death Is Nothing At All poem

death is nothing at all shortened version

Let it be spoken without effect, without the shadow of a ghost on it. I pray that the Holy Spirit lift you up in the midst of your storm giving you peace that passes understanding, love that surpasses knowledge, and joy unspeakable. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. I also send it to folks after their losses. If that is right, the poem is actually designed to make the point that death is very much real, and separates us from those we love. But no one can take my memories.

Dead Interesting: Death is nothing at all?

Seeing as it deserves wider exposure, I thought I'd reproduce it here: Death is sometimes our enemy, sometimes our friend. He has showed me many signs that he is still right here with me, however, the sadness of not being able to hold him or see him in the flesh is so strong that sometimes I don't know if I believe that he is still here with me. Holland struggled academically until he came under the influence of Thomas Hill Green, the senior tutor in philosophy at Balliol. He was hospitalized, but he passed on during the midnight hours. I now know that I refuse to accept guilt for feeling like this, because what I feel is the truth.

Death Is Nothing At All poem

Let my name be ever the household world that it always was, Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it. There is this trust and bond that's simply there. I remember as if it were yesterday being told my son had a non-curable brain tumor. Then this week on Wednesday , I lost my Granny; she was sick. Both Holland's and Idle's passages have their merits, but overall I dislike the apparent agenda and effect of Christopher Idle's alternative passage. She wanted this piece read at the funeral. It is not easy, but we are trying to cope with it.

I had many of these moments with my mother and it changed us both forever. I am blessed to have family and friends that are here each day to pray for me and I have Jesus to keep me from falling until I can again stand on my own. It doesn't belong in this world, and one day it will be dealt with. Still, it makes me so sad that I cannot read this poem without weeping. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Paul's Cathedral of London, did not intend it as a poem, it was actually delivered as part of a sermon in 1910. When the words fail, sitting alone or quiet with my friends, watching or waiting, thinking and looking, the silence of prayer.

Coming up on Mother's Day is always hard for me since my mother passed away 22 years ago. Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? There is no way this should be allowed. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. My husband Rick, the love of my life, passed away suddenly this past October. When I did, I found out that she had died and been revived on the operating table. It brought so much comfort, reiterating what I believed to be true.
