Life With Death Contended

If people could

They’d stay and sit awhile

Like disciples in Gethsemane

Like Mary when Christ died

But we do not leave her lonely

Her body we attend

And draw near to one another

As family as friend


Thanks to television

I can sit and watch

And marvel at the people passing through

The sight truly amazing

A slow processional

Death has come

Now comes confessional


I confess the rising of the Lord

This human life of ours

Too good to fail

So death shall hold no terrors

No fears on that last day

The witness of so many people

Tells another tale
