Gone, But Not Forgotten

(gone, but not forgotten)
then we will attend a wedding where starry-eyed Young Man and Woman will
commit their lives to each other till death doth part. 

May we live with the consciousness of the Shadow of Death
and honour life's Giver with every breath.
 for we never know when we or someone we love will be gone...

Gone beyond the blue horizon
Gone beyond the strait called time
No more guessing or surmising
Death unveils the last Great Climb

Gone while we remain to wonder
What yet waits for you and me
When the gates part over yonder
To begin eternity

Gone where there is no returning
To prepare to meet the Lord
When the end of this life’s journey
Rends the veil to the reward

Changed from mortal to immortal
In the twinkling of an eye
Gone from earth to that Great Portal
Where the soul will never die

 Let your light so shine before men,
 that they may see your good works
and glorify your Father in heaven.
