The Way of a Seer~ To Robb
In Memory of my Beloved brother Robb who died November 3, 2009. CROSSING THE BAR
Sunset and Evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea.
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
From that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place,
flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
-Alfred Lord Tennyson
