Beyond The Veil

Beyond The Veil

Tags: death, fear, hope, peace, joy

The time will come for me to draw my final breath,

A day which yet my faint hearted soul would deny,

The day when I will have to take my last goodbye,

To face alone the dreaded moment of my death,

But in the midst of doubt a flame of hope burns bright, 

That beyond the horizon of this mortal sphere,

A better life awaits when we cross that frontier,

And pass through death into a place of wondrous light.

And so a sudden glimpse of joy lights up my mind,

Like summer sunshine breaking through the mists of time,

With promise of a future even more sublime.

Though I may fear that call which may not be declined,

I hope that on the day I lose these mortal chains

And leave behind the ties of kin that bind me here,

The cloak of darkness that masks my vision will clear

And I will see beyond the veil that still constrains

My soul within this material creation,

And I will be released to soar beyond the sky,

Where in the glorious light of eternity,

I will be one with love’s benign incarnation.
