Life is a Transient Affair
Life on earth is a transient affair
Just a few brief years in which to prepare
For a life that is free from pain and tears
Where time is not counted by hours or years…
So death is not sad–it’s a time for elation.
A joyous transition,
The soul’s emigration
Into a place where the soul’s safe and free
To live with God through eternity.
May God be very close to you now,
as he is with your loved one.
