Mary Moloney (1917-2018)
When a person reaches advanced old age,
after having lived a full life,
dying becomes almost as natural
as the picking of a ripe apple
or the falling of a brightly coloured leaf in autumn.
The harvest is gathered in,
the journey ended,
the story told.
Life’s task is finished
and neatly bound together like a sheaf of wheat.
There is a roundness about the person’s life,
a sense of completion and fulfilment;
and while there is sadness at the leaving
there is joy too,
so much so that the funeral becomes a celebration.
Such a death is like the coming of sleep
after a long and rewarding day’s work.
