In Death There Is Life
And Death in time comes riding up from hell
To tempt or claim those waiting there for him.
All stand in trembling at the Devil's whim --
Perchance to hear the tolling of the bell.
But fate no certainty as time will tell,
May send mixed blessings with the Cherubim --
Bring Death or joyful songs of Seraphim.
In Death there's Life and Life in Death will dwell --
Transitions all ... a change to something new;
Our lives fulfill according to some plan.
Weep not at Death --Rejoice with great elan
To end one life, another life renew;
In gardens sow --where every seed will be
A fresh beginning of new things for thee.
