Weeping echoes no more in the hazy war torn streets.
The churning insides of our beings replaced with inner peace.
Behold the laughter of innocent children frolicking in the plains.
Their parents tranquilly enjoying life with song and dance---no pain.
Witness the animal kingdom united in harmony,
As the lamb, the wolf, and the grizzly bear bask side by side with glee.
Our aching for those lost in death transforms to ecstasy,
As we embrace them close in our arms----soon a reality!
Yes, this glimpse into the future is a promise we can trust!
For our God who cannot lie has sealed it with His love.
God pleads, "Come under my mighty wings, you indecisive ones."
He'll protect you from all harm, as you listen to His Son.
(Isaiah 2:2-4, 11:6-9, John 5:28-29, Revelation 21:3-5)
This is a sequel to my poem, Gone.
