  5. In memory of mom

    “In a beautiful blue lagoon on a clear day,
    a fine sailing ship spreads its brilliant
    white canvas in a fresh morning breeze and
    sails out to the open sea. We watch her
    glide away magnificently through the deep
    blue and gradually see her grow smaller and
    smaller as she nears the horizon. Finally,
    where the sea and sky meet, she slips silently
    from sight, and someone near me says, ‘there,
    she is gone!’

    Gone where? Gone from sight. That is all.
    She is still as large in mast and hull and
    sail, still just as able to bear her load.
    And we can be sure that, just as we say,
    ‘there, she is gone’ another says, ‘there, she comes!’.”

    Henry Van Dyke
