Death Poems For
The Grieving Heart
Book and CD

Death Is Not Doom

Death is not doom.
Take the loved one's leaving
Without grieving,
With joy,
Death is transition,
The return trip home.

We, on loan to life, on holiday
Come from God's place
Go back again,
Adventure done,
New phase begun.

Death is the ultimate move,
Warm welcome,
Dark symbols, grim thoughts
Are error.
Eliminate terror.
Joy is the feeling.

Death is drama.
End is beginning.
Lies in forgetting
The larger plan.
We are not God,
But human.
