Life Goes On And On - Poem by Jim Boone

As the tears of sadness are dried
The pain that brings them
Is cradled in the heart
Passed on to Spirit

The morning glory smiles
On the rose petals on the ground
Tributes reminded the living
Of the shortness of breath

Focus on today does not lessen recall
But keeps us from falling off Our path
As Life crosses, connects and goes by.

Soul separates from Spirit at birth
As the breath of physical life is
Breathed IN and Soul (personality)
Begins to blossom and grow.

You’ve got Soul and everybody knows
That it’s all right – this is ‘the’ Life
For now, long term or short term

Then the breath is knocked out of you
Or we live a long life and exhale
As Soul reconnects with Spirit
And life unending goes on, and on, and
“Well hello there, good old friend of mine”

1998
