“Someone special has gone from us.
Her smile has ceased, her voice is still,
Her place is vacant in our home.
That place can never be filled.”
Death Is A Doorway
On the “WINGS of DEATH”
the “SOUL takes FLIGHT”
Into the land where
“THERE IS NO NIGHT”
For those who believe
what the Saviour said
Will rise in glory
though they be dead …
So death comes to us
just to “OPEN THE DOOR”
To the KINGDOM OF GOD
and LIFE EVERMORE.
