    And now, as I close my task, subduing my desire to linger yet, these faces fade away. But one face, shining on me like a Heavenly light by which I see all other objects, is above them and beyond them all. And that remains.
    I turn my head, and see it, in its beautiful serenity, beside me.
    My lamp burns low, and I have written far into the night; but the dear presence, without which I were nothing, bears me company.
    O Agnes, O my soul, so may thy face be by me when I close my life indeed; so may I, when realities are melting from me, like the shadows which I now dismiss, still find thee near me, pointing upward!

    It is easier more efficient but a little less romantic these days; just click on that little x on the top RHS panel button or little red circle on the LHS top or the shutdown option ;)
