Beyond the Rainbow's End

		At my rainbow's end, there is no pot of gold,
		but something more magnificent to behold.
		There won't be, as some think, beyond that last breath,
		just a burial plot for my home after death.

		We've more than a body; each one has a soul
		that can't be interred in a six-foot-deep hole.
		My conscious and undying soul will then be
		with Jesus, who saved me and set my soul free.

		I'll have a new, glorified body up there, 
		sweet peace in a lovely place beyond compare,
		prepared just for me as my promised reward
		for trusting God's only Son, Jesus, as Lord.

		Right now we can’t grasp the full reality
		of life after death, souls, and eternity;.
		but all-knowing God gives us what we need now--
		His Spirit and His Holy Word that tells how
		to follow His plan and how Heaven can be
		the home of our souls after death sets them free.
		Beyond my last rainbow, a home waits for me
		in Heaven. God’s glory at last I will see.

Congratulations on your well-deserved 3rd place win in my contest, Janice:-) Btw, typo alert in Stanza 2! I think you meant "We're"?

Edward, THANK YOU for placing my poem. No, I meant "we've" because "we have" is consistent with "each has." Since it's not a typo, I hope my placement wasn't affected. Don't get me wrong; third is good! Janice
