Mrs. Emmet Fowler


Lines to the family of the late Mrs. Emmet Fowler, who died at her home at Fort Dodge, Iowa, Saturday, February 25th, 1882, aged 39 years, 11 months and 16 days.

Sadly and painful now,
The work of the household is done;
For she who led in the tasks of the day,
To the tomb and its silence has gone.

You know your dear mother is dead,
The coffin is borne from the door;
You have stood by a wide open grave,
And your hearts with their throbbings are sore.

Around you, you have gathered dear friends,
To whisper kind words in your ear;
But awake to the gloom and your loss --
All dimly and sadly you hear.

And a gloom yet abides in the house,
Its presence you cannot dispel,
It weighs on your hearts in your dreams
And comes in the morning as well.

No smiling face now in the morn,
No touch of a hand on your brow.
Your motherless children all cling to you;
You must comfort and care for them now.

You must plan for the broken home now,
For the little ones left in your care;
You must finish the work left undone,
And wait for the dawning of day.

A day which will bring to your heart
No shadow or sorrow or gloom;
Where the blanks of your life will be filled,
And love without parting shall bloom.
