Death...a dedication poem to a great man, Mr. Haywood Earls

Death…
it is not the end,
it is merely the beginning.
We leave this
place we call home
to be joined with
Christ
for forever and a
day.
Our families may
grieve,
our friends may
weep.
Maybe even our enemies
will sense some sorrow.
But through all that
has come and
all that is coming,
may the people
that we come
into contact
with,
Whether it be
past or present,
look over our
life
and know
that we lived,
not for ourselves,
but
to point that
friend,
acquaintance,
family member,
coworker,
neighbor,
or whoever it might
be,
to the
one who holds
our life
in a delicate
balance.
