Farewell to Thee! But not farewell
to all my fondest thoughts of Thee;
Within my heart they still shall dwell
and they shall cheer and comfort me.

Life seems more sweet that Thou didst live
and men more true Thou wert one;
Nothing is lost that Thou didst give,
nothing destroyed that Thou hast done.

Anne Bronte

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort..."

2 Corinthians 1:3
