Life after Life vanquishes away,
more and more every day.
For as long as I can remember,
death has been a cruel family member.
Unkind and uncaring,
death is too daring,
whether loved one or friend,
bringing their end.
No one walks this path alone.
We all have someone gone home.
Yet no matter how much grief we share,
the loss is still ours to bear.
Today, tomorrow, another soul will leave,
and again we each will grieve,
until our turn comes to hear His voice.
We will sorrow no more, but rejoice.
