Life Goes On...

Sorrow swings its sickle, reaps...
We who yet remain, pause, weep
Then return to learn, yearn, trod
Living's way to faithful God 

A week ago my friend said good-bye to her mother.
We gathered to 'weep with those who weep'
 ...then life hurried us back to 'promises to keep'
Thoughts and prayers remain to sustain...

Life goes on
And so does death
Live life well
With every breath
Soon its dust-to-dust will lie
In God’s trust beneath the sky

Life goes on
And death does too
No one knows
When life is through
Thus for life’s swift gift of days
We should give God all the praise
