My twin brother and I had always loved the water, and the rain and sea were our weakness, life was not kind to either of us in his last were of us seeing the his last sun rise on the sea side and him dying in my arms … for that one moment all his pain went away and then I knew death was kind, a perfect poem for a such a time… and one day I do hope to return with him.

I have been preparing the words I want to be read at my husband's funeral tomorrow. John died last week after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's disease and Dementia. When I read the words of this poem, I imagined him being able to leave his body and enjoy the sea that he loved so much. Life was not kind to him but I felt this poem showed the kindness that his death may bring.l Thank you Sara - I searched long and hard.
