Out of the body goes the mind
Under the cavern and over the line
Round the universe three thousand times.

Floating above the unsightly plains
Swirling over the seas again
Drifting into a land of bliss
A land of thoughtful nothingness.

A state of the dead
Both body and mind
And yet a new life in the search of peace
Floating away where time has ceased.

Written by Wilma McWatters, about 1963

Rowland read this during the Meeting for Worship held for Wilma's funeral on 2009-01-29 at Cheltenham Crematorium.
