Would you like to read a poem? Of course you would! Here is a sweet treat from Billy Collins:
The dead are always looking down on us, they say,
While we are putting on our shoes or making a sandwich,
they are looking down through the glass-bottom boats of heaven
as they row themselves through eternity.
They watch the tops of our heads moving below on earth,
and when we lie down in a field or on a couch,
drugged perhaps by the hum of a warm afternoon,
they think we are looking back at them,
Which makes them lift their oars and fall silent
and wait, like parents, for us to close our eyes.
Sending each of you great love, peace, hope and life!
