Death - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
How fragile life is that death can claim it!
But has death the last word over life?
How precious life is that we need to keep it!
But our days on earth are short and numbered.
As leaves that fall to the ground rot and decay
So is the human body when death overtakes it.
Every song has its last note, every poem its last verse
Every human life has its last breathe.
Beware that this short-lived life-
This life that rots and decays
This life that is able to breathe its last goodbye
Finds itself united with the Giver of life.
For in Him death is conquered.
