Unrehearsed death comes only once in a lifetime.
We remain strangers on the outskirts of one

Leaving life, no longer able to fend for itself
On Scandinavian shores unsurpassed by empty
stares in boats passing through the night.
Longingly distant throughout, at the end,
unforbiddenly unsurmountable.
Death takes each of us on a special date to
eternity.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
