Journey's End

by Sharon Catley
(Vancouver, BC, Canada)

REST YOUR HEAD, MY WEARY TRAVELLER
THIS EARTHLY JOURNEY IS AT END
SAY GOODBYE TO THOSE WHO'LL MOURN YOU
AQUAINTANCE, FAMILY, FRIEND

STEADFAST WIFE AND NOBLE MOTHER
ALL YOUR DUTIES ARE COMPLETE
YOUR REWARD A NEW ADVENTURE
TAKE THIS GIFT AND BE AT PEACE

LEAVE BEHIND THE TEARS OF LOVED ONES
LAY YOUR HEAVY BURDEN DOWN
CAST ASIDE YOUR WORN OUT BODY
PAIN AND SUFFERING NOW BEGONE

JUST AHEAD SOMEONE IS WAITING
WHO HAS PASSED THROUGH HEAVEN'S DOOR
ANTICIPATING YOUR ARRIVAL
A CELEBRATION IS IN STORE

PREPARE TO STEP BEYOND THE THRESHOLD
SEPARATING LIFE FROM DEATH
ANSWERS TO ALL OF LIFE'S MYSTERIES
THIS AND MORE YOU SHALL POSSESS

THOUGHTS OF YOU WILL BRING US COMFORT
YOU'RE IN OUR HEARTS, YOU ARE NOT GONE
AND IN OUR TIME WE'LL COME TO JOIN YOU
ONE LAST FAREWELL AND JOURNEY ON
