Life after Death

I hope there’s life after death
A soul that exists with our last breath -
Out of body steps

It would be a shame to just die
To become small dust motes in the light -
No eternal life

I don’t know what death will bring
But nothing more is terrifying -
I cling to faith’s wings

    Yes, it is terrifying to die! But I believe we will live after we die and there will be a place for us to go! If not what can we hope for, what could bring us peace in our fears of death?! Fabulous poem Susan! I thought it very enjoyable! Awesome Work!!
