Rain Drop Of Eternity - Poem by Bob Burnette

Our life is like a raindrop,
It starts out clean and small

Then gathers with other raindrops,
To make a brook, as if to answer Creation's call

The brook trickles to a creek,
That passes over rocks and snags and falls

The creek travels down to a river
And is pulled into undertows, currents and swirls

The river flows to a mighty ocean
And joins with the land and sky,
Then to form the world

Our world is a tiny speck, in an endless universe,
Around, below, and above

All of creation is lost, only to be found again,

"In God's eternal love"
