There Is No Death

There is a plan far greater than the plan you know;

There is a landscape broader than the one you see.

There is a haven where storm-tossed souls may go-

You call it death - we, immortality.

You call it death - this seeming endless sleep;

We call it birth - the soul at last set free.

'Tis hampered not by time or space - you weep.

Why weep at death? 'Tis immortality.


Farewell, dear voyageur -'twill not be long.

Your work is done - now may peace rest with thee.

Your kindly thoughs and deeds- they will live on. 

This is not death -'tis immortality.


Farewell, dear voyageur - the river winds and turns;

The cadence of your song wafts near to me,

And now you know the thing that all men learn:

There is no death - there's immortality.
