For Those Who are Lost

These recent days souls are flying to heaven, bewildered and lonely; How long does it take to get to heaven? For whom is it quicker? Those that welcome the journey with open arms Or those on whom death has arrived with unexpected alarm still crying out for someone to hold their hand To reach out and anchor them to land? Still not knowing .. where they are going .. strangers we will never see Lost children-husbands-fathers-wives and mothers Strangers we will never know, But in this moment they are one of us.. Do we all reach out to a god we do not understand In our moment of fear or want to know At this time of passing to wherever we go. They are one of us. We all can pray, call it wishing if you need, And send yearning love to follow them above.

It is and has been months of sad times on this earth for the sick/dying and those who fear that this illness will create illness and death in us. I believe there is going to be a vaccine soon and very soon. However, we will all die at sometime in our lives unless being born again and one of the church who will be caught up in the rapture. Enjoyed reading your work. Sara
