After Earth

We do not like to stare at Death
But sometimes we must, for then we
Remember we are dust to dust
And after earth, eternity

To deny the existence of
Something does not obliterate
The truth of life, death and God’s love
Or our appointment at His Gate

© Janet Martin

We went to a visitation/wake for a friend whose mother passed away. 
Death makes us think, if we let it, doesn't it?!
