Life - Poem by Benedicta Ruiz

life begins from a father's care
and a loving mother as well
caressed by love
until body and soul has merged
to live on earth, a role to play.

on this world, a stage for all
thespians we are,
each to act a part
time fleets by and body's role
will suddenly depart from the soul.

beyond the stage
an ultimate goal to reach
prelude passed, interlude came
postlude... a cessation
but into God's possession.
