Like many others I am seeking a poem for a memorial service. I have searched 114 poems of Henry VanDyke, the poet but cannot locate his beautiful allusion to a ship sailing away. The last line refers to the far shore and people there saying 'her she comes'. I think this is a commonly used poem on funeral bulletins.

    I just posted that poem under Niki Clarkes name, the other day.
    It was chosen by my sister for her funeral last year when she died of Ovarian cancer.
    I believe they use it as some kind of call to victory
