When I Die, Will The Emails Stop?

Poem By Lewis Eron

When I die, will the emails stop?
And the text messages,
and the letters,
and the bills,
Or will they rest in my away box
Until resurrection?

Death could just be a vacation.
Everything will wait until we return
And our punishment will be
Trying to catch up with promises not met
And letters gone unanswered
And bills still to be paid
And with friends
Who, too, will return to busy lives.

And all this will take a long time
But not forever
For God is merciful
And we will come to see that
Most of the stuff
Really wasn't all that important.
