Crossing Over - Poem by Janice Walkden

What of death - there’s nothing to fear
when the lamp goes out, it will all become clear
Death is a doorway - an interdimensional gate
where our souls enter a different state

We soon will learn, taking our last breath
Love... like Life is stronger than death
For heaven and hell are states of mind
not locations on Earth that we may find

The lamp goes out for it's a New Day
Gods Light and Love will show us the way
and once again we’ll see them smile
Those we have loved and lost awhile
