When life flickers out as a candle flame,
It’s easy to think that life is all in vain.
When life takes a turn you weren’t expecting,
It’s easy to go about the problem dissecting.
We don’t get to choose when we die,
Life flickers, leaves are body with a sigh.
In the hands of the ultimate time keeper,
We throw up our hands and weep.
It’s not our choice, it is not for us,
To see our futures, to know when we go to dust.
Every death is a shock; God help us if it’s not,
To end a journey on this earth is frought,
With our bodies we trust, falling apart and breaking down.
It doesn’t mean we should lose all hope and frown,
We need to pray for grace, and wisdom in life.
To live our lives to the fullest the best way we can in constant strife.
Please believe, if you have Faith in God and follow His ways,
You will see your loved ones in heaven some day,
Time apart will be minimal,
Time in heaven is subliminal.
There is life, and there is hope don’t be scared,
Only consider we have so few years to be beared,
Earth is full of broken people with open hearts.
Fill up their hearts with prayers and let hope start.
