At times when sinners are dying, they still cry for Hooper, refusing to yield in death until he comes to them. When the Reverend Clark asks Father Hooper if he is ready to lift the veil that separates time from eternity, he agrees, with faint words.

The speaker mentions that his passed wife didn’t quite understand these things and that’s basically why she’s no longer here. Yet, in the The Voice, the theme of death is explored by showing grief. Both for his beloved wife and his youth self. It can also be seen throughout the poem that his grieving process is making him confused on whether he can hear or see her. Either way, it can be seen that he truly loved her and mourns on her

He said, “ …before the mind can persuade itself that she whom we saw every day and whose every existence appeared a part of our own can have departed forever.” (Shelly 29) This quote shows when his mother died his mind was trying to persuade itself to thinking he is going to be okay but in reality she has departed through death and he is left with being isolated and alone with no one but him and his mind.
