The Way the Story Goes

Nobody lives forever
So the story goes
All must walk that lonely path
To Jordan's shadowed shore

No one knows for certain
What lies on the other side
All must find the final truth
When they pass through death's dark door

Some will say when darkness falls
There comes eternal sleep
Others say a door is opened
Where all is light and peace

I know which thought that I'd prefer
And I know what I believe
But no one knows for certain
No one can really see

No one lives forever
All will walk that road
All will find their final truth
That's how the story's told

    Well, you penned this one very well. I know my preference too, not that we have a choice. Or do we? Who knows. You captured my thoughts. Love, Shar
