> Death's Dirge
>
> We all wait in line for a time which we know not.
> When we'll be but a lingering memory to the living.
> Such moments are heartbreaking yet it's man's lot.
> This is evident now even as we are all mourning.
>
> Death, Death, Death!
>
>
> He feels and knows nothing about sympathy.
> He breaks the bond cherished between loved ones;
> His visits are saddened and he has no empathy.
> His touch is cold, and cruel and nothing can be done.
>
> Death, Death, Death!
>
> We all might not feel the heat of this loss;
> But, we can make a ‘partial‘ sense of death.
> Yes, only a partial sense of this life's cross.
> To what end is death when we lose our breath?
>
> Death, Death, Death!
>
> We were created to live and to live forever.
> But a simple act of disobedience got us here.
> It brought Death's cold and dark clouds to hover.
> But soon, we'll know no sickness, death, and tears.
>
> Death, Death, Death!
>
> Yes! Soon, death will be no more;
> No more of this life's headaches;
> No pain, fear, sorrow and no war.
> We'll be in bliss; there, no heartache.
>
> There will be a great reunion of all nature;
> Reunion of all dead and alive; the obedient ones.
> There's hope beyond death for every creature;
> Though we cry now, we shall soon sing in joyful tones.
>
> And we will sing about our stories;
> Oh! Where is death's victory?
> Grave will lose hold of its captives;
> This will be the end of Death's story.
>
> May we be comforted by these words.
>
> Thank you.
