Grief and the beyond
. . .
Everyone is dying,
But this earth is left for the wicked like us;
That we may live to suffer the loss of the angels who have gone before us.
O, that we shall meet again someday,
In the sweet, by and by –
After we have been cleansed
And made worthy to enter that pristine paradise.
O, that such a day may hasten upon us
And cut short our agony on this hell called earth –
That our souls may forever be lifted
In sublime ecstasy, by the eternal bliss
That comes from re-joining those who have gone before us.
O, may I be prepared when that day comes.
O, may I be prepared.
. . .
