Fading into the West

I dreamed I was floating along
Sails billowing from side to side
The water was cool to the touch
As I sail onward into the West.

As the land was fading away
And drifting off into the mist
It seemed that I became ethereal
In mind, body or spirit.

I faded with the fog into the night
And rolled off the wave swells
Down and up each side I went
Until I could sense nothing more.

At last I awoke to a golden sunrise
Falling off an ivory cliff
With emerald green swards greeting
All whose life is reborn, into the West.
