GONE FROM MY SIGHT

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue 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 each other.

Then someone at my side says, “There! She is gone!”

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large in
mast and hull and spar and just as strong in beam as she was when she
left my side. She is just as able to bear her load of living freight to
the place of destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her; and
just at the moment when someone at my side says, “She is gone!” , there
are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the
glad shout, “There she comes !”.

And that is dying
