    Death means nothing

    Death doesn’t mean anything. I just went to the next room. I still am Dick and you still are Alicia my “Tu solo Tu” (You and only you). We will always be what we have always being for each other.

    Call me by the name you have always called me: “Love or Mi Amor”. Talk to me the way you always did, not in a solemn or sad way. Continue laughing about the things we always laughed. Let my name be pronounced around our house the same way it always was without sadness or special reverence.

    Life is the same as it always has being. The connection between us still there. Why should I be out of your mind just because I am out of sight? You are still in my heart and I in yours.

    I will be waiting for you, I am not far, just on the other side of the road. See? Everything is Ok. You will always feel my tender loving care.

    Wipe off your tears, don’t cry anymore, I know you love me and miss my physical presence, but I will always be with you.
