Why Death Comes? - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

There is a place after life;
There is a home after death;
There is a life after life on earth,
And that is the Abode of God
Called Heaven!
It’s a place of joy alone;
It’s a place devoid of sorrows;
It’s a place that’s free from pain and sin;
It’s a place that’s very pure;
It’s a place where sufferings are unknown;
It’s a place of everlasting joy;
It’s a place of commune with God-
Eternity is its name!
Death gives rest to souls that depart;
Death gives reprieve from earthly woes;
Death is the only way to God’s Abode;
Death heralds the resurrection of souls!
When death comes, why should we fear?
Death is the one way to Heaven;
But when it comes, our soul must be prepared,
And if that is done, why bother?
Miracles can be wrought by God;
Prayers can bring miracles through;
Yet, a sea of fervent appeals from souls,
May not keep back a single soul
For a time longer than
What God has pre-destined!
Because, God knows each heart;
God knows each soul;
God knows our sufferings,
And the ideal time to deliver
All.

    There is a place after life;
    There is a home after death;
    There is a life after life on earth, .........
    Shall we make heaven on earth...
    with little deeds of kindness
    little drops of driping sweat
    little selfless acts of unknown deeds?
    For the lord must so desire
    For the lord must so aspire
    For the lord must in such visions
    Sent us mortals down to better ourselves.......
    and our surround! ! ...............Is'nt that your vision too?
    i can feel it between the lines of your poetry!

    Dear John,
    Thank you.
    It surely does!
    I hope, some priests and pastors read this out and make a brief sermon for once in a life-time!
