A Poem In Memory Of Tobias Buller,
Son Of Benjamin Andreas K Buller and Helena J B Becker.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
And, like phantoms grim and tall,
Shadows from the fitful firelight
Dance upon the parlor wall;

Then the forms of the departed
Enter at the open door;
The beloved, the
true-hearted,
Come to visit me once more;

He, the young and strong, who cherished
Noble longings for the strife,
By the roadside fell and perished,
Weary with the march of life!

They, the holy ones and weakly,
Who the cross of suffering bore,
Folded their pale hands so meekly,
Spake with us on earth no more!

And with them the Being Beauteous,
Who unto my youth was given,
More than all things else to love me,
And is now a saint in
heaven.

With a slow and noiseless footstep
Comes that messenger divine,
Takes the vacant chair beside me,
Lays her gentle hand in mine.

And she sits and gazes at me
With those deep and tender eyes,
Like the stars, so still and saint-like,
Looking downward from the skies.

Uttered not, yet comprehended,
Is the spirit's voiceless prayer,
Soft rebukes, in blessings ended,
Breathing from her lips of air.

Oh, though oft
depressed and lonely,
All my fears are laid aside,
If I but remember only
Such as these have lived and died!

~Henry Wordsworth Longfellow

My Grandfather was Tobias Buller, son of Benjamin & Helena
Becker Buller. He would have been a brother to Elsie Buller
who was married to Jacob Johnson. Tobias was married to
Susie (Susanna) Schultz. She was a sister to Anna Schultz who was married to Peter Buller. When Tobias died in 1915, Susanna married Frank Smith. If anyone knows anything about Frank Smith I would like to know it. I don't have much information about the Buller's either. My Mother was Dena
Buller. My Father's name was Frank Koehn. He grew up at Goltry, Ok. Email me if anyone has more information. Clifford Koehn Geary, Oklahoma
