As if in in joyful ecstasy,

Kissing the holy earth and praying,

Giving up his soul breathlessly,

But in all hearts forever staying.

Fortunately, the death of a loved one does not destroy the memory of that person. Instead, a death will only make you love that person even more. This poem is based off the death of the elder Zosima in The Brothers Karamazov.
