"Love knows No Distance , , , I'm Only A Whisper Away "

I'm only a Whisper Away - Words of Comfort
"What Is Dying"

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.

I stand and watch her until at length she hangs
like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come to mingle with 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
as she is just as able to bear her load of living freight
to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

Ans just at the moment when someone at my side says:

"There, she is gone!"

There are other eyes watching her coming
and other voices ready to pick up the glad shout:

"Here she comes!"

And that is dying.

by Henry Van Dyke

"I'm Only A Whisper Away"

Don't stand at my grave and cry
Call my name and I will come
I'm only a whisper away

Don't stop living because I'm gone
Remember the love we shared
I'm only a whisper away

Don't let joy slip from your life
Laughter is a part of living
I'm only a whisper away

When it's your time to leave
Don't fear where you will go
Call my name and I will come
I'm only a whisper away
