presented here as a compliment
to their thoughtfulness and love.


*** There is No Death ***

"I am standing on the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her
white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and
strength and I stand and watch her
until at length she is a speck of
white cloud just where the sea and
the sky come to mingle with each
other. Then someone at my side says,
"There! She's gone!" Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all.
She is just as large in mast and
hull and spar as she was when she
left my side and she is just as
able to bear her load of living
weight to her destined port. Her
diminished size is in me, not in
her. And just at the moment when
someone at my side says,
"There! She's gone!"
There are other eyes watching
her coming and other voices
ready to take up a glad shout,
"There she comes!".
And that is dying.
