End and Beginning

A Soul wrapped in fragility
Is born again in strife
New born pure fragilty
Begins another life.

Brief time to take life's measure
Enjoy each new delight
Learning quickly what to treasure
Before the fading of the light

Spring gives way to winters frost
The seasons change,the young grow old
The souls wrapping leaves will soon be lost
As the warmth of life turns ever cold

The soul released from mortal clay
Is set free again from strife
Within Gods keeping let it stay
Until called again to life

Living teaches us to die
And dying teaches all this truth
Every death has a new beginning
Wrapped inside it.

(sigh) Oh Michael, this is wonderful, dearest friend, there is a beginning after every end and like a phoenix may we rise out of all the ends that we come across each step of the way! (sigh) God Bless You, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
