What Then, My Love, What Then? (a question of utmost importance!)

Internet is too slow for pics;(

When all the days that we have known are melted into Yore
And Past is that Last steppingstone into Forevermore
When all the summer-longs are gone and all the winters thrust,
Pray tell, what then, when sons of men lay down this garb of dust?

When we join death’s begotten where forgotten ages roll
And all that yet remains of us is our undying soul
And even those who once loved us lie as we in That When
Of on and on and on and on, pray tell, my love, what then?

When all we deem important falls like soiled and crumpled socks
And nothing that we do can woo the etiquette of clocks
When Choice has sealed its freedom and The Voice from Heaven hails
As grace resigns its sympathy and Mercy seals its grails

...what then, my love, what then, when that last, Awesome Exhale bows?
When Repentance or Unbelief acquaints us with our vows
Will that last breath called Death unveil for us Heaven or Hell?
And if we think we will escape, what then, my love, pray tell?

Pay Attention to Salvation
…For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty, how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.

Do you know Jesus?
 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
