~ There Is No Death ~
There is no death.! The stars go down
To rise upon some fairer shore:
And bright in heaven's jewelled crown
They shine forevermore.
There is no death ! The dust we tread
Shall change beneath the summer shower?
To golden grain or mellowed fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.
The granite rocks disorganize,
And feed the hungry moss they bear ;
The forest leaves drink daily life,
From out the viewless air.
There is no death! The leaves may fall,
And flowers may fade and pass away;
They only wait through wintry hours,
The coming of the May.
There is no death! An Angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread
He bears our best loved things away
And then we call them. "dead."
He leaves our hearts all desolate,
He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowers
Transplanted into bliss, they now
Adorn immortal bowers.
The bird-like voice, whose joyous tones,
Made glad these scenes of sin and strife
Sings now an everlasting song,
Around the tree of life.
Where'er He sees a smile too bright,
Or heart too pure for taint and vice
He bears it to that world of light,
To dwell in paradise.
Born unto that undying life,
They leave us but to come again
With joy we welcome them the same -
Except their sin and pain.
And ever near us, though unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread;
For all the boundless universe
Is life—there are no dead.
Sir Edward Bewlar,
Lord Lytton (1803-1873)
Life is but a stopping place
A pause in what's to be
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant
to learn some things,
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place
Far greater than we know.
For some, the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
If I should ever leave you,
Whom I love
To go along the silent way,
Nor speak of me with tears.
But laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you there
For I will come - I'll come!
Would I not find a way,
Were tears and grief not be barriers?
And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,
Please do not let your thoughts of me be sad.
For I am loving you just as I always have ...
You who were so good to me!
There are so many thing I wanted still to do-
So many things to say to you ....
Remember, please, that I did not fear death.
It was just leaving you that was so hard to face.
You cannot see beyond this life
But this you know ... I loved you so
Never doubt that I am with you still!
For love does not die with the body
And nothing in heaven or on earth
Can keep apart those who love.
