Phyllis Strong

Death Is The Final Destiny

Like the vivid color of a rose,
It's stem so sturdy and strong.
Although you put them in water;
their life is not very long.

And so her life was on this earth,
too short to you and me.
But the days that she was here;
her beauty all could see.

And like the fragrance of a rose,
her scent will linger on.
Although she's absent from this earth;
her memories are not gone.

So keep good thoughts of her;
In your heart,
and God will dry your tears.

She's happy in the arms of God;
No more pain,
No more sorrows,
No more fears.
