What Does It Mean? - Poem by James Tipp
The words were read from scripture
“Death where is your sting”?
Its here, right here and now, as I listen
The pain is still unbearable some times.
What does it mean death has no pain?
The words that followed made no more sense
“Grave where is your victory”
From where I stand I feel a sense of defeat.
I long for my loved one,
Cling tenaciously to their memory.
If all there is in life is the experience of now then cry
But what if, what if life has just begun
When the passage of this journey is over.
What if the message of scripture is true?
That the tomb empty of Christ is ours
To claim and to hold in the hope of eternity.
Then death has not sting and grave no victory
For all that lies ahead is life, and reunion.
