There is one place death can’t go…

to travel past the cross,

death controls life found here but

not beyond its cost,

The cross stands for the hope it

inspires, a sure reason,

without the cross, to know it for

its truth… and not be lost,

deep the grave may be but not

outlasting life to come,

this is ‘the undiscovered Country’

for spiritual eyes,

this body, tent or housing might

fall down… toward my end

but we shall continue on…

to everyone’s surprise.
