I am standing upon the seashore.
A yar ship at my side spreads her white sails to the moving 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; a white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then, someone at my side said "There, she is gone." Gone where? Gone from my sight, that's all. She is just as large in mast, hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And she's just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me not in her.
And just at the moment someone said, "There, she is gone" there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!!!"
~Fair winds and following seas Daddy Bill. Love will comfort your Baby Girl with every whistle of a train.
