Sonnet: Our Life On Earth Precedes Heaven
This world is like a boarding-lodging place!
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
We need it surely for our earthly stay;
But when we leave it for a newer base,
Our earthly days, forget forev’r, we may.
This world is like a journey by a ship!
On board we meet some friends and strangers say;
When destination comes, farewell we lip;
And like a dream becomes the yesterday.
This world is like a trip to foreign land!
It springs surprises, shocks, sadness and joys;
Let’s nev’r forget the divine, loving Hand;
Let’s listen to the Omnipotent Voice.
Our earthly stay is but a transient must
To gain Heaven, tho’ made from earthly dust!
