There is no Death

I am standing upon the seashore.

A ship is at my side and spreads her white sails

to the morning breeze and starts out upon the ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength,

and I stand and watch her until at length

she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down 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 span as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.

Her diminished size is in me, not her ....

And just at that moment when someone at my side said “There, She’s gone”

There are other eyes watching her coming and other souls taking up the glad shout “There she comes”------AND THAT IS DYING!! Anon

Die dood is n soort skielike stilbly, en dan n ongelooflike lank wegbly.

Ter gedagtenis aan my man Kobus. Hy was die anker van ons huis. Ons familie mis hom!

Groete: Koekie Erlank.
