Elizabeth (Liz) McKeown Nicholas

   For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt 
into the sun?
 
   And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from 
its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God 
unencumbered?
   Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed 
sing.
   And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall 
begin to climb.
   And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly 
dance.

Gibran, Khalil. From “On Death.”  The Prophet.
