** THE SHIP **

A ship sails and I stand
watching till she fades
on the horizon.
Someone at my side says,
'She is gone'.

Gone where? Gone from
my sight, that is all.
She is just as large now
as when I last saw her.
Her diminished size and
total loss from my sight
is in me, not in her.

Just at that moment,
when someone at my side
says she is gone,
there are others
who are watching her
coming over their horizon
and other voices take up
a glad shout -
'There she comes!'

That is what dying is.
An horizon and just
the limit of our sight.

Lift us up O Lord,
that we may see further.
