What Is Dying?

May 11, 2008

It has been asked, “What is dying?” Someone once described their thoughts in these words:

I’m standing on the seashore as a ship spreads her sails to the morning breeze and starts to the ocean. And someone at my side says,

“She is gone.”

But gone where? The loss at side is only in me, not in her. Just at that moment, someone on another shore begins to cry.

“Here she comes! Here she comes!”

For others are watching and waiting for her homecoming. Others pick up that glad cry.

“Here she comes!”

And this… is dying.
