    We can't take it with us when we leave this world. Nice way to describe it all.

    Very touching write! You are so right- the riches and other materialistic things we possess in this life mean absolutely nothing in the end. Well done

    I can hope everlasting peace is reached. A good rest from futility of a physical existence, another rebirth.
