The Journey

Take my hand and walk with me through the sands of time,

Hand in hand we take the steps to turn our pain benign.

With every grain beneath our feet rubbing away the old,

We walk the path through sand and strain to reach the isle of gold.

It is there we land, holding hand in hand, having trekked for miles,

Through grain of sand and forbidden land, we find the eternal nile,

To bathe in it and re-birth our love, in waters clear and true,

Rest, dear souls and weary feet, for we have walked the miles of woe,

To find ourselves, standing hand in hand, strongly against the tow,

Like a grain of sand, tumbled, forming the base of the land, we grow.

Take my hand and walk with me through the sands of time,

To destiny reached, upon this beach, and meant to last a lifetime.

written for my husband in 2021

Place of birth: Korntal, Germany
Date of death: August 5, 2021
Place of death: Ottawa, Canada
Resting place: Ottawa Muslim Cemetery
Submitted by: Mila Bordt

Dr. Michael/Mick/Micki Bordt peacefully left this earth on the morning of 5th August 2021 at his Ottawa home of 30 years. Born to Susie (Elfriede) Locke and Fritz Bordt in the small town of Korntal, Germany in 1954 and moved to Prescott, Ontario in 1956, continuing to pursue a successful, beautiful and adventurous life. He always had a great passion and curiosity for travel which fit in so well with his work, naturally connecting people around the world with similar passions and sharing the gift of seeing the world with his family. He undoubtedly had a special connection with Indonesia after moving there in 1988 where he would meet his wife, Lis.

Countless number of professional and academic achievements over 67 years of life, including but not limited to: 35 years at Statistics Canada, 3 years at United Nations ESCAP Bangkok, OECD Paris, Canada Fisheries and Oceans and a PhD in Geography from University of Ottawa where he dedicated his expertise and passions for the environment, statistics, ecosystems, economy and of course the ocean to make a difference in this world, inspiring colleagues and friends alike.

He recently took on and had a significant part established a superhero project, The Global Ocean Accounts Partnership which is beginning to transform how countries measure and manage the progress towards sustainable ocean development. This project has been his pride and joy over the past 3 years and we can be confident that his esteemed colleagues will continue this project and carry it out the way Michael dreamed of.

Survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Liswati Seram, and their 3 wonderful children, Mila, Dani and Andi Bordt. Son to Elfriede (Susie) Locke. Younger brother to Roswitha Lipman-Baker and older brother to Martin Bordt, Fritz Bordt and Roswitha Stein. Uncle to Jordan Lipman, Devin Lipman, and all of the loving, extended family in Indonesia and Germany. Michael’s legacy will live on for decades to come in his passions for world citizenship, Ocean preservation, endless intellectualism, tastefully dry and clever humour, his abundance of unconditional support, love and generosity for his family, his warmth, kindness, and his famous height. He’s the gentle genius giant we all needed and deserved. We will forever miss his presence and keep our love for him in our hearts always.

The funeral was held on 7th August and was attended by his family, old friends, and colleagues at the Ottawa Mosque and Ottawa Muslim Cemetery. Special thanks to the Ottawa Muslim Association and the Ottawa Mosque for a beautiful service. Thank you to everyone for the support and love over the past month and to all the esteemed colleagues and organisations who donated the hundreds of trees in our father’s name, our family is forever grateful.

Do not stand by my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints in the snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn’s rain
When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there. I did not die.
