Poetic Reflections On Life and Death
13 November 2013
 
 
I'm definitely not a poet, and I don't really like poetry very much. Nevertheless, today I felt a poetic stirring in my heart that I felt I should write down, for what it's worth.
Life is short
At any moment it can fade away
Like a clinging morning mist
Which is dissolved by the rising sun of a better day

Life is like a dream
Unreality and obscurity all around
Decaying and passing away
Until we wake up from our dream into eternity

My body is an old garment
Death takes it off and throws it away
Not to be unclothed, but to be clothed with
A spiritual body, imperishable, glorious, powerful

I live in this earthly tent
Groaning and burdened by mortality
Longing for my Heavenly dwelling
Built by God and not with human hands
