Crossing Over

Crossing Over

Dry your tears and pray for me
As I cross the bridge to eternity
Life is but a single breath
On the journey that we know as death
A brief pause…like a gentle sigh
For we are born, only to die

I do not fear this great unknown
For I do not travel this path alone
There is no reason for you to grieve
Or be sad for me when I leave
I am not lonely… because…you see
Christ our Savior walks with me
