Home Again

I just picked up Detail's ashes from the vet, so he's back home albeit in a completely different form.  Actually I'm never sure he really left as I think I've felt his spirit from time to time.  I'm shaking off my black and white view of life. 
For now he's in a very pretty wooden container on the mantle.  He came home with a little certificate also.  There's a bit of a poem printed on it along with his name and ours. 
"Farewell, Master, yet not farewell.
Where I go, ye too shall dwell.
I am gone, before your face,
A moment's time, a little space.
When ye come where I have stepped
Ye will wonder why ye wept."

--After Death by Edwin Arnold
