What is dying
A ship sails and I stand watching till she Fades on the horizon and someone standing beside me says she is gone ,gone where? Gone From My Sight ,that is all; she is just as large as when I saw her,the diminished size, and total loss of sight is in me,not her, and just at the moment ,when someone at my side says she is gone , there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad about, there she comes! And that is dying.

Weep not for me
Weep not for me though I have gone,
Grieve of you will,
But not for long upon my soul's sweet fight
I am at peace ,
My soul's at rest there is no need for tears.
For with your love,
I was so blessed for all those many years
There is no pain, I suffer not,
There is no fear,
So put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on,
Remember not my fight for breath,
Please do not feel upon my death,
But celebrate my life with you,
And my going home to the lord,
Knowing we will see each other again.
