After Life

A novelist internalizes her characters until they seem quite real to her. Just so, a loved one who is gone remains a real, internalized, emotional presence. Mixed in with wishful thinking, isn't this where the belief in an afterlife comes from?

Rhyme of the Day:

They offer belief
As a form of relief
From grief.

None of it's true,
But I know
Why they hope that it's so.

For it seems
In your dreams
That the loved one still lives
And still gives
Love to you.
