For My friend Paula

Postby Rusty Zipper » Sat Jan 21, 2006 5:51 pm

A Reflection upon a Life! ... I am standing upon that foreshore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails in the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strenght, and i stand and watch her until at lenght she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and the sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says " There She's Gone! " Gone where? Gone from my sight, thats all. She is just as large in mast and spar and hull as ever she was when she left my side; just as able to bear her load of living frieght to to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at that moment when someone at my side say's there! She's Gone! There are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, Here She Comes! And that is dying ------ Victor Hugo... by for now my sweet friend... i will miss you, but never forget you... all my love, Patrick
