			Until I know which way you went.

Thoughts on death

Charles Mackay
			There is no such thing as death,
			In nature nothing dies.
			From each sad remnant of decay
			Some forms of life arise.

John L. McCreery
			There is no death! the stars go down
			   To rise upon some other shore,
			And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown,
			   They shine for ever more.
