Life Never Ends

by | May 25, 2003 | Christmas, Poem

To all, who visit this web-site, in the sincere endeavor to better understand the many facets of what we term: “Death.”

I have lost a dear loved one, my brother “Bill.” Although my life will never be the same, because of my loss, my having known him has greatly enriched my world. A Tribute to my fellow web-site visitors, I humbly submit the following poem, that I believe is very relevant, not only to the Christmas holiday ahead, but to all holidays to come, as we tend to be reminded, even more, of our family members’ or friends’ absences.

It is also a Tribute to those, who’ve gone ahead and with whom, we’ll one day, be reunited — but in God’s time, not ours.

Merry Christmas and may you start your new year and the next Millennium with a renewed faith that neither God nor our loved ones will ever leave us on this earth, to walk alone. May we all go through this life, in the Light of that love.


Life Never Ends

The holidays were here again.
So, why was I so sad?
Recalling good times, way back when . . .
One would think I’d be glad!

But times had changed and you weren’t here,
To celebrate with us.
Which lessened things, like Christmas cheer —
Why did we make a fuss?

Now, God does help me understand,
How I’m supposed to live.
He guided me and took my hand.
Now, I’ve got much to give.

I’m not the only one who’ll grieve,
For loved ones, who may die.
I pray, my pain, He’ll still relieve
And my sad tears, He’ll dry.

Now, you’ve shown me a way to see,
That I am not alone —
How written words could set me free,
From loneliness I’d known.

At times I struggle; then, I’m okay.
And, as I meet you all,
I thank God for you, everyday;
Now, grateful teardrops fall.

To one another, we reach out,
Consoling those who share.
Isn’t this what Life’s all about —
Us, showing that we care?

You have the courage, to go on;
And so do I, my friends.
With help from loved ones, who have gone,
We know — Life Never Ends!
